Category Archives: 3D Shapes
Here are some new games I added to my Math Work Station tubs:
3D Spin a Shape is available in my 3D Shapes Pack. The children place a paper clip on the circle and place their pencil tip in the paper clip and spin. They color in the corresponding shape on the sheet.
3D Shape Grab is also available in my 3D Shapes Pack. The children place the cards upside down and pick a card from that pile. They say the name of the 3D shape and record it on their sheet. Some of my kiddos like to draw the object that is represented on their recording sheet, while others just like to color in the shape. I want the kiddos to recognize 3D shapes in their world, so there are lots of 3D shape and real world examples included in the stack of cards.
If you haven’t checked out all the great resources you can use in your classroom on YouTube, you SHOULD! Here are some of my favorites! 🙂
This is one of our FAVORITES!! On Friday, we have a little dance party while counting–my kids have some moves! 🙂
The 3D Shape Song:
The Short Vowel Song:
This is a recent find and we are loving it! The kids sing it all day. 🙂
We use these Just Dance for Kids videos for our Brain Breaks
Kung Fu Fighting:
The Hamster Dance:
I’ll add more as I find them, but these are videos we use everyday in my classroom. 🙂
After we made a class 3D shapes chart on faces, edges, and vertices, the children had the opportunity to create their own chart (soon to go in their math journals). They partnered up and investigated each of the shapes and recorded them on their own charts. We then got back together and talked about our findings:
Here are two cuties discussing what a face is on this cube. 🙂
We have moved on to learning about 3D Shapes! I was planning out my activities and lessons for next week and was trying to find just the right thing to help me teach 3D shapes and I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted! You know how you get a picture in your head of what you’re looking for and you won’t settle for anything but that picture–yeah that’s what kind of mood my brain appeared to be in today!
I created a quick and simple pack of 2 activities that can be used to help my kiddos (and yours!) learn the 3D shapes!
You can click the picture above to go to my Teachers Pay Teachers store for more details and for a listing of the games included. 🙂
