Storytime: Shapes

Books

What is Round by Rebecca Kai Dotlich
Lots of Dots by Craig Fraizer
Perfect Square by Michael Hall

(I repeated this program for Toddler Time, but used Bear in a Square by Stella Blackstone instead)

Song
“Shape On Their Head” (modified from Laurie Berkner’s “Pig On Her Head”)
I gave each child a shape, and then sang a verse with their first name and the shape they were holding on their head.

Activities
1. Disappearing Shapes – This idea came from Gift of Curiosity. I cut coffee filters in half then drew shapes on them with washable markers. Each child had a filter, plate, small cup of water, and a pipette (to squirt the shapes into submission).

2. Shape Hopscotch – I used painter’s tape to put shapes on the floor for hopscotch. A for effort, but it didn’t work out very well. It was hard to keep any semblance of order.
