Shape Up Please!


I made this little book for my grade level to use next week to review shapes. I am hoping this is a review but we can also practice concepts of print. The new sight words are here and is and I am providing addition practice with the word the. The little books are a big hit in the room and I have the kids highlight the sight words with their yellow crayon to keep them engaged. I love when one little book covers many different standards. Now I need a Big Book to match this. Do you want a copy? Grab it and shape up! These graphics were designed by www.djinkers.com and can be purchased.

Thank you soooooo much. I love this. Is it okay if I add 2 pages? We have to teach rhombus and hexagon. Also, just wanted you to know that my kiddos love Pete the Cat. It is so funny when I tell them we are going to play some brain music they ask for Pete the Cat. Don't know if you look at J/ Meacham's site but she has help info for registering the items you make.

I love all the skills this will teach & reinforce. Do you have a pacing guide you could share with us as far as letters & words? It would sure help me. I am the only K teacher in a small rural school & sometimes feel really isolated...like I'm walking in the dark. I am LOVING & benifitting from all these Kinder Blogs!

Thank you Fran for sharing your shape book for free. I am trying to put together a shape unit for the first couple weeks of school and this is perfect.
