When I owned an old Victorian house and renovated it to be the Hastings House gift shop, one of my best sellers in the “Kids’ Collection” were little metal locks.

I always let my own children “shop” the catalogs with me, to see what they’d want.

They were a great gage as to what other children would want too.

I never would have ordered the locks, because I had no idea what a child would do with them.

They came with a set of 2 little keys.  Well, a zillion other kids liked those pretty-colored locks too; I used to order them by the gross every few months.

It’s a fun way to review the various 2D shapes, including the pentagon, hexagon and octagon, as well as the Common Core State Standards: RF.K.3a, RF.K.1c, RF.K.3d, RF.K.3c, L.K.2a, L.K.2b, L.1.2b, RF.1.1a, K.G.2

They trace and write the shape word, circle the capital letters and add the end punctuation, as well as cut and glue the key, to the matching numbered box in their booklet.

The last page offers some additional writing practice.

When everyone has completed their booklet, read it aloud as a whole group, to reinforce concepts of print, as well as reminding them that there are spaces between words, they read from left to right and from the top down.
