Each problem was made so that you have variations of numbers for 1 to 12. The sharks are set up in rows that make them easy to count. So there might be five groups of seven. You would write 5 x 7 = 35 on the paper.

Hands-On Shape Sorting with Ocean Fish

Shapes are something kids work on for a long time. They learn their shapes different ways: the names, types, etc. I’m always looking for some fun way to work on them. We have loved the shape packs and sorting was always one fun activity we have done.

Hands-on activities are always fun to have in learning centers.

These Shape Sorting with Ocean Fish is a part of the 5 Days of Ocean Printables.

Free Hands-On Shape Sorting with Ocean Fish - with circle, square, triangle, and rectangle - 3Dinosaurs.com

This set works on four different shapes: circle, square, triangle, and rectangle. I wanted something simple for those that have been asking for more shape activities.

It is easy to set up and use. There are 6 fish to sort to each shape name. I recommend lamianting the cards and mats to make sure they last longer.

You can see the four different mats to sort the fish too. Each mat has the shape name on it. This is great for late PreK and kindergarten age kids. Or maybe one who needs reviews of the shapes.
