Knowledge of shapes is an important foundational skill for your Pre-K and Kindergarten students, so they will need lots of practice. Lucky for you, I have just the resource to help! These Shape Activities and Centers for Pre-K and Kindergarten will be a great addition to your shapes curriculum!
Shape Activities and Centers
There are a lot of skills your early learners gain from shapes. Of course, they learn to identify and name 2D and 3D shapes, but they also make real-world connections and learn important vocabulary and symmetry. These skills build the foundation for geometrical thinking.
This pack is filled with engaging shape centers for Pre-K and Kindergarten that are NOT themed and can be used ANY TIME of year!
With 13 different activities included, these shape centers are perfect for teaching 2D and introducing 3D shapes.
Explore 2D shapes such as circles, triangles, squares, ovals, rhombuses, rectangles, hexagons, and trapezoids. And have fun with 3D shapes like cubes, cones, spheres, pyramids, rectangular prisms, cylinders, and triangular prisms.
Check out a few of the activities in this pack below…
Your students will love this “Dot It!” shape activity! Use with bingo daubers and crayons, or you can laminate and have kids use clothespins and pom poms to fill the shapes for a fine motor center!
This activity comes with two different versions. Dot the simple shape and trace its name. Or, dot the shape and color objects in the environment.
Either way, your students will love exploring shapes with this activity.
Your kiddos won’t be able to get enough of this “Make It!” activity. There are two different versions of this activity, so students have options on how they want to make shapes.
In the version pictured below, students use tangrams to fill in the shapes. This is a great activity because children can see how putting different shapes together can make a new shape!
The other version of this activity uses geoboards and rubber bands. This is not only a great shape activity, but an activity in fine motor and visual spatial skills as well.
These adorable Shape Mini-Books are a great addition to your centers, morning routine, small groups… or really anytime!
Each book focuses on one shape and has examples of where a student would see that shape in the real world. Both 2D and 3D shapes are covered in this book set.
The books are super low prep. Just print and fold! No staples or cutting, so they are easy to whip up for your kiddos. Plus, your students will love coloring their books and making them their own!
