10 Shape Activities for Preschoolers
After a horrendously cold and ridiculously long winter, I refused to spend a lot of time at home over the summer. So when my daughter and I weren’t racing to summer camp or music class, chances are we were out doing something else, like riding on the subway, walking around Toys R Us, eating popcorn at Starbucks, running errands, or visiting the splash pad. It was glorious. But my need...
Encourage learning shapes while keeping your child amused with these great shape activities.
If you're looking for educational boredom busters to help you get through the long (and cold!) winter months with your sanity intact, this collection of shape activities for preschoolers is just what you need. I really (really!) love # 2!

Actually repinning this for a cute toolbox idea she has further down her blog. Awesome organizer. teacher binder ideas - DO THIS NEXT YEAR. awesomely organized
Classroom Organization: Teacher Binder
I love this idea! It eliminates the wait time while each kid "digs" through the treasure box. Everyone can SEE what the choices are and they can decide what they want while they are waiting for others to pick something. I would probably place it inside a cabinet door, though. It might be too tempting for some little hands if left out in the open.

Use over the door shoe storage to display class store items.
Another awesome classroom organization idea! I love this idea! It eliminates the wait time while each kid "digs" through the treasure box. Everyone can SEE what the choices are and they can decide what they want while they are waiting for others to pick something.
Classroom management - dual purpose: math practice/money counting & reward system! I bet you could talk about saving and such as well with this. Great idea. Been needing a way to tweak the "treasure box".
Class Store in a shoe hanger! I love this idea! It eliminates the wait time while each kid "digs" through the treasure box. Everyone can SEE what the choices are and they can decide what they want while they are waiting for others to pick something. I would probably place it inside a cabinet door, though. It might be too tempting for some little hands if left out in the open.
Instead of treasure box have a class store- Classroom management

An Educators Life: I want to try this. Every time the class is on task have them pull a letter title and place it anywhere they choose! When a word is completely spelled they receive that prize
Educator Life, Rewards Ideas, Student, Education Life, Behavior Management, Classroom Management, Class Rewards, Classroom Rewards, Rewards System
Cool class reward system. When the class or a student does something good let them pick a letter from a bag and place it on the reward they would most like. When one is filled set a date to give the student the reward! Good behavior incentive.
Classroom Reward Idea - Students earn a chance to draw a tile and place it wherever they want. When the prize is completely spelled, the class gets that reward.
Try next year in music class? Rewards to recognize good students. They draw a tile and place it wherever they want. When the prize is completely spelled, the class gets that reward. An Educators Life: Rewards Made Easy
Behavior Managment: Cool class reward system
Possibility for classroom management-- Students earn a chance to draw a tile and place it wherever they want. When the prize is completely spelled, the class gets that reward.
