In the past few years, I have posted some of my favorite songs and videos about shapes, counting, multiplication, coins, time, fractions, teen numbers, area and perimeter and addition facts. I try to keep these posts up to date with the latest songs and videos I am using with my students. They are a great way to get a little movement break while still working on important math concepts.
One area that has changed and improved a lot is the number of videos and songs for teaching shapes that are now available. Instead of updating my old post on You Tube videos for shapes, today I am going to share with you some of my current favorites for 2-D shapes and later this week I will share some of my favorites for 3-D shapes.
Jack Hartmann's Shape Songs
Secret Agent Shapes
This one is all about finding shapes around the classroom.
Two Dimensional Shapes SongThis one is new to us this year. It is short and sweet and to the tune of this old man.
Shapes Song for Kindergarten
A great song for primary kids, this one has a lot of real life examples.
|My students have been using these 2-D shape cards to play 8 different games!|
Shape Name Game
This one is one I use in primary and as a review with older kids. There are a lot of different shapes presented here! The end of the song has 3-D shapes as well.
This one is a little more detailed and I use it with grades 1-4. It has great information about all kinds of polygons.
Square and Trapezoid Shape Videos
Have Fun Teaching has a series of these videos about many 2-D Shapes. They provide a good level of detail about the attributes of these shapes.
|One of our favorite games with our 2-D shape cards has been playing Pyramid. It is a lot like the classic solitaire game Pyramid 13!|
