I am excited to be taking part in my first STOP, SWAP AND ROLL with Jungle Learners.
I was very fortunate to be paired up with Amanda from Daisy Designs. I love her products!
I decided I wanted to use her geometry pack: 2D and 3D Shape Activities for K-2, because I needed a few more activities to use with my students to wrap up our unit. I liked that the activities were engaging and the actual printable was very easy to understand for firsties – it wasn’t too busy, which is sometimes the case.
First up, we used the sorting sheet. She includes a sheet of shapes to colour and cut out for her Shape Categories activity which could be used for the Shape Sorting activity. I had already prepared a different set of shapes so we used them instead. After sorting they were able to colour the triangle border, which was a huge bonus for them!
I also used her Shape Detectives activity. The kids had a blast with this one. I had them work on their own to come up with 3 clues about their 2D shape. Next they were partnered up with someone and they had to read each other’s clues and then build the shape out of popsicle sticks. They loved this hands-on piece. It was great to watch them puzzle through how to build some of the shapes. With a little perseverance they were building hexagons and octagons! J
I love that these same sheets will be useful when I start working on 3D shapes next week. We can use marshmallows and toothpicks to build our shapes for Shape Detectives. The kids will love that!
