Shape Sorting Game
The original concept of the game was to roll the die, and then place the corresponding shape in the correct area. Of course, the kids and I decided to make up some new games, as well. Like jumping in and over the shapes.
At first the girls were a lot more interested in other uses for the shapes:
Then we did a quick lesson on measuring the Area and Perimeter of rectangles:
We used the broom to sweep up the shapes when we were done. Taking the tape off the floor was enjoyable too. We put the tape into a big sticky ball and then threw it around. I also put pieces of blue tape on their noses and they laughed and laughed.
UPDATE: I was so inspired by how much my kids enjoyed early learning games that I created the La La Logic Critical Thinking Curriculum for 3-6 year olds, which includes online brain challenge games, printable worksheets, enrichment activities and more!
