It's All About the Shapes

There are lots of fun math activities in my new Kindergarten geometry unit, It's All About the Shapes. These activities can be used for whole group or guided math instruction. This unit includes game boards, sorting mats, guessing bags, differentiated memory, guess my shape and spin and cover games that make learning about 2D and 3D shapes memorable. Go grab these activities in my Teachers Pay Teachers Store.
My students' favorite activity in this unit is the shape guessing game. I love the 
game Hedbanz. We play it in our classroom all the time, especially on Fun Friday. I used the headbands and concept of the game Hedbanz to create this activity. The student places shape or real object cards on their headband. The student wearing the headband can ask question about their shape. "Am I a solid shape? Do I have 6 faces? Do I roll?" You can also play this game by having students give the student wearing the headband clues. "You are a solid shape. You have lots of edges. All of your faces are the same." This game was a big hit during guided math groups.
There is also a fun math craft included in this unit...
