Kinesthetic Game: JUMPING IN AND OUT OF SHAPES Draw shapes like circles, triangles and rectangles on the floor with a piece of chalk - avoiding squares, because they are too difficult to define without a ruler and to distinguish from a rectangle by a 4 - to 5 - year - old child. Later you can add hearts, stars and diamonds. Be sure to leave some space between your shapes and tell them to jump in and out of them. Do it slowly at the beginning and increase the speed once they’ve got the different shapes’ names. You’ll notice after a while that one or more of your students will feel a strong desire to lead the game, which is exactly what you want!!! Give it a try and jump!!! © Miss Lucy’s Teaching Fun -- Spain


Cut these shapes out, then put them in the right order: from the smallest to the biggest and from the darkest to the lightest.

This next activity will help your student become more conscious about the physical differences among each shape, by making their own. Print the bars on some cardbard and, after cutting them out, join them with a pin.
