Two-dimensional shapes are completely flat. Learning 2D shapes is important for future math learning.
Download our 2D shapes activity below.
This activity introduces 2D shapes. Can you name the 2D shapes? Draw a line and match each shape to its name. Can you think of any other 2D shapes? Can you draw them? This activity has also been designed for handwriting practice.
Common Core alignment:

Read our report on the Science of Reading. Research-based reading instruction must incorporate the 5 pillars of reading: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.
This report provides an easy to understand overview of each of these pillars and explains the important connection between how the brain learns to read (the Neuroscience of Reading) and how we teach children to read (The Science of Reading Instruction). It also explains why helping children build connections between letters and sounds, through phonics and phonemic awareness, is so crucial for the developing reading mind. This report is perfect for sharing with colleagues, friends, and to Google Classroom!
