Along with using the resources from my unit, here are a few other shape activities I did with my kiddos. To learn about shapes and their attributes (how many sides, etc.) we create a fun shape people book. When they create the shape people, they have to make the eyes, nose, and mouth into whatever shape the body is. Here's a sample from the "square" page in my teacher created book:
We also do a lot of work in interactive math journals. To make life easier with labeling pages to show what activity we are working on, I just print the words on sticky mailing labels and there is no gluing involved! When we were learning about hexagons, since they are super tricky for my kinders to draw, they each got a plastic shape manipulative and traced them all over the page. The 3D shape (cube) attributes and circle map page shown next to the hexagon page is included in my new shapes unit!
To continue on with 3D shapes, we sang this poem often and the kids would take turns holding each 3D shape in the air whenever they heard the name of the shape read aloud.
And we used marshmallows and round toothpicks (they're not sharp) to build 3D shapes! They LOVED building these!
