This Preschool to Kindergarten Shapes Book is perfect for teaching shapes while improving cutting and scissor skills: all needed to begin writing. This shapes book is a fun activity that students will proudly make and take home to family. Your students will love using scissors and glue to create this keepsake. You can choose from a colored version and give the student the added practice coloring. Saves ink too! Students will cut out shapes using a dot pattern (easiest) or a line pattern and then glue them in the book. Cutting and gluing strengthens the hand/finger muscles and promotes eye-hand coordination which is needed to write letters and numbers.
Shapes: square, circle, triangle, rectangle, oval, octagon, heart, star, arrow, pentagon, hexagon, diamond, (rhombus), trapezoid, and cross.
What you get:
- Book cover page (Color and B/W)
- 14 shapes (Color and B/W)
- Shape cutouts using large dots (easier0
- Shape cutouts using dashed lines (more difficult)
