1-2-3 Come Do Some Shapely Activities With Me
Since the Silly Shaped Penguins, as well as the Shapely Owls have been such popular downloads, I decided to design a spring "craftivity" too. When I took a look at all of the spring baby animals, the cute little chick clicked for me!
I hope you enjoy using them, as much as I had fun making them.
I've included patterns for the standard 2D shapes, as well as the pattern block trapezoid and rhombus shapes, plus the 3D cone, cube and cylinder shapes.
For more pizzazz, tape a real feather to the top of the chick's head and accordion fold the legs. Adding wiggle eyes also adds more pop.
You could also make the wings moveable by punching a hole and attaching them with brass brads. Click on the link to view/download the Shapely Slick Chick Packet.
The packet includes a set of black & white shapely slick chick cards, as well as a full-color set.
I've also made 2 sets of shape-word cards.
These are perfect for Memory Match or "I Have; Who Has?" games.
Run off the black and white templates and have students make an Itty Bitty Slick Chick Shape booklet.
There's also an easy reader booklet, which covers lots of standards.
Students read the sentence, underline the capital letters and add end punctuation.
They trace and write the shape words, add features on the first shape to make it look like a chick; trace the second shape and then draw the shape.
On the last page they tell which shapely slick chick they liked the best.
I've included a graph, so you can record the results. Standards are also covered with worksheets for spatial directions, attributes, and matching the word to the shape.
Finally, to build self-esteem, I designed a sweet certificate of praise. Click on the link to view/download the Shapely Slick Chick packet.
