Each page features an apple themed tracing guide for each plane shape.
Students can start at the apple and trace around to the apple tree to complete each shape.
Then they can color in the word at the bottom to become acquainted with each shape word.
Each page is also available in a line art version if you need to save on color ink.
An awesome way to use these with students is to laminate them and then add math counters or playdough.
Students can place pompoms, mini erasers, or other counters on the page to complete each shape.
They can also use playdough to “build” each shape.
