Shapes for Kindergarten
- All players place their play pieces at the “Start” block. Take turns to roll the die and move that number of spaces. Simply name the shape to qualify for the next round. Watch out for OOPS! where you have to go 1 space back. You are lucky if you land on the Bonus Throw blocks- then you can have another roll with the die! First player at End, wins!
- Or, make it more interesting by proving each player a piece of paper or white board, then he/she must copy the shape too. Or even draw a picture of a real object, eg. a ball for a circle, a piece of pizza resembling a triangle etc.
- Another option, to add movement AND even more fun to the game, is to collect a real object that has that shape from the room. A child might roll a rectangle and collect a book from the bookcase. Making use of real objects helps the child to understand the correlation between 2D(on paper, as on the play board) to 3D objects(the physical objects one can see, touch, smell etc.).
