Easy print and prep 2D shape activities for kindergarten math centers. Fun, hands-on ways to reinforce 2d shape recognition.

We like to use easy, hands-on activities to practice different math concepts. Here are some of the centers we did to practice 2D Shapes:

Spin and Build

Students used the spinner, then built the 2D shape they landed on. This was great for practicing how many sides and vertices each shape has.

We put this center out for a few days, and we added different materials.

This was a huge hit with our students, and they were able to explore and learn about 2D shapes without even realizing how much they were learning!
