Today I want to share with you files created for learning basic shapes. There are free printable pages with tracing shapes for kids in preschool and kindergarten. I must admit that I had fun creating them. My favorite in this printable is the last page with a foldable booklet.
There are just three basic shapes to trace, count, and color in these free worksheets. I decided to work just with a triangle, a square, and a circle because these are basic shapes, and there is enough to practice just with these three shapes.
What will you find in these free printable pages with tracing shapes?
- Traceable shapes from small to big on the first three pages. At the bottom of these pages, I added traceable capital letters words TRIANGLE, SQUARE, and CIRCLE.
- One page with tracing small shapes. Your child should start tracing from the black dot and follow an arrow to trace all shapes.
- I made one page to practice counting and finding shapes on the page. Your child should count how many squares, circles, and triangles are on this page.
- The last page is for fun. My kids created books with stories, comic books, and even one-page books ;). Kids like to create books. Because of that, I made a template with a foldable “Shapes” book. To create this fold-up book, you need only scissors.
How to create a fold-up “Shapes” book?
- Print the page and let your child trace shapes, color them (decorate maybe with stickers?), and trace words.
- Fold the page in half along the long side.
- Fold the paper in half, but this time along the short side.
- Unfold the last fold and fold the paper along the long side.
- Unfold the page again. You should have now page folded just once in half and visible lines along foldings
- Cut the page in the middle along the dotted line (from the folding side to the middle like in the picture below).
- Now fold it as it is accordion style.
Your book is ready :).
