Now I Know My ABC's ~ Ss

It's time for some fun Ss activities!!! We hope you enjoy these! If you are new, you can visit our ABC webpage to find links to any other letters we have done, letters (with books listed) coming up, as well as the PDF of the cover sheet for your ABC notebook!

I decided to focus on shapes because LO's seem to be fastinated by them. While my LO has known her shapes for some time I can do shape activities one day a week and she loves every minute of it! I figured while some might know their shapes already, they will still have fun doing their 'Ss is for Shapes' pages.

Summary: A scoop of ice cream is a smooth circle. A wrapped gift is a secretive square. A piece of pizza is a tasty triangle. This colorful book shows kids the shapes that make up the world around them.

Ss is for Shapes Collage

- Cut out construction paper shapes like the ones used in the book (Circle, Square, Triangle, Rectangle, Heart, Diamond, Star, Oval)

- Have your LO glue them onto a piece of construction paper and label them.

- Have LO color the Ss template

- Cut out and glue to the Shapes collage and add 'is for Shapes'.

- Hole punch and add to alphabet book binder.

Shapes Safari

Print off the pages for the shape safari from Making Learning Fun and follow the directions on how to play. This is a favorite activity of ours and we play it as well as the number, alphabet and friends safari {we turned the friends safari into family safari}.
