Flipping Over Shapes




My kids come with limited school experiences and often need more work with shapes. This can be done through patterning, sorting, and literature. Here is a flip book I made to help them practice cutting and pasting shapes they might see in the real world. The graphics are by DJInkers and can be purchased at their site. Here is a copy for you and let me know how your students like it.Click here for the download and I hope it helps your students.

Thank you Fran.. I was in the middle of making things for this week for my kinders with shapes. Just like you, my kiddos come in with limited experiences and needed more practice. Thank you for the flip book. It is perfect!

Thanks Fran! My darlings this year have VERY limited experience. It has been awhile since I have had a group that needs this much help on a few of the things I take for granted (i.e. pencil holding, scissor use, etc..and colors and shapes) So, thanks for sharing this. It will come in handy!

Awesome - I cannot wait to place in a math work station for review :) Thanks for sharing.

Random question....didn't you post color cards on your blog not too long ago? You had the color word on one card and a color on the other for students to match? Am I dreaming this...I got them from somewhere and would bet I got them from YOU! Where might I find those on your site, if so?! :)
Thanks Fran.

Just found your blog and I love it! Thank you. I have a technical question. When I print out the shape flip book the "name_____" part does not print. Neither does the little note on the 3rd page. Do I need to download a special font? Thanks.

Shauna said...

I have loved your blog from the very first post. I am excited to print this shape book out to use with my little ones.
Thanks for sharing all of your fabulous ideas with us!

Thanks for sharing this. It will be a perfect activity to do with my Young Fives!

Ms. Amber said...

Thanks. Great for a review basic shapes and a useful scissors activity for my preschoolers. The word above the shape is perfect for reinforcing that letters together make a word.

Hi Fran,
I am a HUGE fan of your blog and I am always blown away by your incredible generosity. I have a question regarding DJ Inkers. Because of all of the wonderful things that you create using their things, I have begun to use them a lot. I have purchased A LOT of their animal sets and they are so adorable. I am being observed on Monday and am currently trying to make a shapes lesson and want to know which set the graphics came from for these shapes and solid objects in the shapes flip book???? I have searched the DJ inkers site and can't seem to figure it out so I thought I would ask you. Thanks a million for all of your work that you share and sell, it is so appreciated!

Fran Kramer said...

Krysti,
You will find those graphics in DJInkers Early Years. It's a CD that is perfect for this grade. Good luck and I know you will be great!
Fran
