3D Shapes!

Are you teaching 3D shapes?  If so, I have put together a mini-pack of activities for my classroom that you might want to see. 
The cover is cute and colorful, but the pages on the inside are all black & white.  they are also no-prep and ready to use.  Each of the three activities comes with an 'I can" student instruction card so you can copy and put them right into your math tubs (or use as a whole class activity).
Here's what you'll find:
Spin a 3D ShapeStudents spin the 3D shape spinner, then color a real life object on their paper.  Can be played individually or with a partner.
Tally It Up!Students count the number of each shape, then tally and print the number.
Color by Shape - Using crayons or pencil crayons students use the shape code to color the picture.

I opened the PDF and used it to teach the activity whole class.

On a pity party note - Sadly, the picture below is not an April Fool's joke.  As you can see we gave up on shoveling the front step a couple weeks ago thinking it would melt by now.  Oh well, at least the sun is shining now!

As always, I'll send a copy of my newest activity to the first 3 people who comment on this post :)

  8. I like the idea of using the smart board with the PDF. I have never tried that before. How do you do that exactly?

    1. It's so easy! I do it all the time. I simply open the file in Adobe Reader and choose full screen. It allows me to use the Smartboard pens :)
