Are you little learners working on learning their 2D shapes right now? I made this Free Printable 2D Shape Sort for a fun way to review. They’re perfect to add them into your center rotation or to use in small groups. The students always love these sorting games.
Download, print and cut out the shapes and game pieces. Laminating is suggested if you’ll be using in the classroom for durability.
To play the shape sort, you can start with just a few shapes that your students are learning about. Let’s say like the picture above, square, circle, and triangle. They will then sort through the pictures of real-world objects and find one that matches the shapes and place them on top.
There are 4 objects to match with each shape. As your students learn more 2D shapes, add in the more as they grow to the sort game.
The 2D shapes that I have included are a square, triangle, circle, rectangle, hexagon, oval and rhombus. If you haven’t introduced all of the shapes yet the students can still play the game with a portion of the shapes.
If you’re looking for more ways to practice 2D shapes, we have many other fun activities like these 2D shape hats.
