I am a Shape Detective!

Hi Friends, 

It is almost the holidays - YAY! One more week, but who is counting!!

This Term one of our topics for Mathematics was Shape - how fun! 

I wanted to share one of our activities we did throughout the unit. This activity is perfect for Foundation/Prep because it allows for the connection to the real world. A Shape Walk allows students to identify shapes in context, using their new knowledge and understanding of shape properties!

Of course to make the Shape Walk more engaging and fun, we made 'I am a Shape Detective!' crowns! We wore our crowns on our walk around the school, the kids thought they were pretty cool with their crowns! 

When we returned to class we brainstormed the shapes we had found and then each child demonstrated their knowledge by drawing and writing about the shapes they saw on the walk. This allowed for differentiation, as I could extend students thinking by asking them to record the number of sides or corners. 

If you would like to do this fun Shape task in your classroom, then head over to Teachers Pay Teachers Store to purchase the crown and recording sheet!

I have also included in the download, a book that your students can complete using the sentence starter 'I saw a _______________' and draw a picture to match. 

Have a fabulous last week of Term Three!!



  1. I would like to express appreciation to you for rescuing me from this type of challenge. As a result of checking throughout the the net and finding notions which were not productive, I was thinking my life was done. Living without the presence of strategies to the issues you have resolved all through this blog post is a crucial case, as well as those which could have in a negative way damaged my entire career if I had not discovered your blog post. That capability and kindness in playing with almost everything was priceless. I am not sure what I would've done if I hadn't encountered such a subject like this. I'm able to now look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot very much for this expert and amazing help. I won't think twice to endorse your blog post to anybody who should get counselling on this area.pace clock for sale
