KINDERGARTEN SHAPES ACTIVITIES

Shapes are one of the first things toddlers and preschools do in early math. As we get into kindergarten they deepen that understanding by starting to learn about vertices, sides, and even the difference between 2D and 3D shapes.

2D Shapes for Kindergarten

We’ll start with some 2D shape activities like sorting shapes by type, and then by sides and vertices. We’ll also look for shapes in real life which is an important kindergarten math skill.

Learning Shapes for Kindergarten

There are several key parts of learning shapes in kindergarten. We want kids to be able to distinguish between 2D and 3D shapes and identify them in real life. We also want them to be able to create the shapes and classify parts of shapes like how many vertices and sides they have. Activities in this pack help with all of these concepts.

  1. I purchased your above pack. I hope that I am overlooking things but don’t see all the things this post covers. I really wanted the color options of these worksheets to use as cookie sheet activities. Especially the shape building cards (were they included in the set)? Also, wanted the graphing activity in color. Slightly disappointed in my $7.00 purchase as your post shows many of these sheets with color.

    1. Hi JJ,

      The Shape Building cards are in color. They are pages 23-26 of your pdf. The Shape Makers Art shape pages and Shape Championships green field page are designed in black and white because it is usually cheaper for teachers to print on colored paper than use colored ink. I just chose a variety of colors and put them in the printer to print the colored shapes on. The Shape Championships field I printed on green.

      The second page in the set is a Table of Contents. It will tell you where to find each of the pages in the pdf. You can also reference the instruction cards, pages 3-5, for pictures of each activity by it’s title to find under the Table of Contents.

      I hope that helps. If you have any other questions, email me at amy@planningplaytime.com, and I can help you out.

      Thanks!

      Amy N.

  2. *Also thought I was getting shape makers art. Let me know if I over looked these items. I just don’t see them in what I purchased.

    1. Hi Lindsey,

      Sadly, I am not able to sell individual pieces of these sets. It takes a lot of time to individually package and list the smaller activities, and TPT charges higher fees on the smaller sets. The price I would have to charge for the one-by-one activities makes it unreasonable for both you and me.

      Sorry about that. Let me know if I can answer any other questions for you.

      Amy N.

  3. como se llama las manecillas de reloj que utilizas en el acrílico transparente, donde lo puedo conseguir?

    1. Hi Kristina,

      Right now I don’t offer individual activities or sheets from sets. It takes a tremendous amount of time and effort to list them individually, and it’s not something I am able to fit into my schedule at this time.

      Sorry about that. Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help you.

      Amy N.

  4. Hello I am interested in purchasing the set that includes 25, no-prep shapes worksheets that are ready to print and go. I was wondering if you could sell it separate.

    1. We don’t sell them separately. The time and extra fees to list them that way make it unreasonable to do so. Sorry about that.
