Today I’m sharing a set of games that will help your child master shape identification.

I’ll be honest with you – my Four often asks for activities, but he doesn’t always like what I create. In fact, he’s kind of a tough audience
But this was a game he loved – and he even asked to play it as soon as we’d finished. So I’m confident that you’ll find someone who likes it, too!
To play, simply print a board game of your choice (you’ll find three in the download) and find small playing pieces. We like to use glass gems.
Grab a die, too.
Take turns rolling the die. After you roll, look at the key at the top of the page and move to the closest corresponding shape. For example, in this game you move to a square when you roll a 2. You might move to the cracker, quilt, chocolate bar, window, checkerboard, or cheese – depending on which is closest.
(You might also land on the diamond-shaped road sign, which is also a square – as my Two pointed out.)
You’ll like that the download comes with games of varying difficulty – so this is perfect for differentiation. Like my other Roll-a-Games, it’s a quick activity that packs a lot of practice!
