Reviews from Happy Teachers and Homeschooling Families:
“This resource was perfect! My students loved making their own Shapes Book and it has helped them to remember the different shapes and how to tell the different. It also makes a great reference for students to have to refer to throughout the year! I highly recommend using this!”
“Great resource for our Math notebooks and I will have the students also use the digital version as well! So glad it is in both formats! Perfect for my students – very clearly stated and engaging. Thanks!”
“My son was having the hardest time learning quadrilaterals, but this helped him so much. It just suddenly clicked with this activity. Thank you! ”
“This was a tremendous resource. My students were struggling with their shapes and once I found this it was a game changer. We glued these into their math notebooks and now I catch my students taking out their notebooks to study these facts all the time. They even quiz each other using the folds. Definitely will be using this resource for years to come! ”
