Kindergarten Shapes Games
The Shape Championships – 2D vs 3D
We LOVE this sports themed shapes game. Children pick cards and move their ball across the field to see if whether the 2D or 3D shapes win the Shape Championships.
Real Objects Shape Sorting
One of the important skills children learn about shapes is how to identify them in real life objects. This cup sorting game is a great way to do just that.
The Great Shape Detectives
In this fun I Spy type game, children search for shapes in the picture. They can circle them and then write how many they find.
Making Pictures with Shapes
Another important shapes skill is being able to use shapes to make pictures. Children can practice using pattern blocks to recreate these pictures. They they can try making a few of their own.
Spin and Cover Shapes
How cute is this simple shapes recognition game? Spin and cover the shapes with snap cubes or other manipulatives.
Build a Shape with Manipulatives
For this activity, children get to practice making the actual shapes out of things like blocks, craft sticks, playdough, yarn and more. This works as a STEM project as well.
Hexagons are such a fun shape to compose, and here children get to practice their skills building their own beehive.
Classifying Shapes Sort
Early geometry teaches kids how to classify shapes by attributes like number of sides or vertices. They get to work on that here using cute shape buttons. This doubles as a fantastic science project as well.
Roll & Create with Shapes
Kids will love this mystery building project. You don’t know what shapes you’ll have to work with until you roll the dice. Build something amazing with what you roll, adjusting as you go.
Composing Shape Art
This activity combines several kindergarten skills. First, the kids get to pick shapes and cut them out. Next, they get to compost a picture with the shapes they picked. Finally, they get to count and record the shapes used in their picture.
Hide & Seek Shapes Prepositions
In kindergarten, children learn to use preposition words to describe the location of shapes. This hide and seek game is a fun way to practice that. They can even use a shape block to move the shape to the location described on each card.
Composing Shapes with Shapes
Finally, we have our composing shapes with shapes cards. Children get to practice making shapes with a variety of other shapes. They can copy the ones on the cards, and then try making a few of their own.
This set also includes 25, no-prep shapes worksheets that are ready to print and go. These are great for extra practice, centers or even early finishers.
The best part is they are an easy add on to your lesson plan, and they reinforce the skills worked on in the kindergarten centers above.
