Shape activity for kindergarten
- Print the play mat in color and then laminate it. Print, laminate and cut up the shape cards separately.
- If you’re using a binder to store the mat, it’s a good idea to include a little tab to label it so you’re able to find it easily in the future.
- Place the shape cards in a little zip lock bag and attach it to the binder or insert it into the pockets.
- Start by naming the shapes on the mat. The kids can repeat after you. If you’re in a large class, you could show this on a projector so the whole class can see.
- The kids will then choose a ‘balloon’ color card and identify the shape. They will then look for the corresponding shape on the mat and place it there.
- They will continue this until they’re done.
