Do you remember how old you were when you first learned how to recognize shapes?
I remember learning about the octagon in particular, because I started looking for STOP signs just so I could say “octagon” and feel really smart.
When you’re teaching preschool, shapes are a critical math skill to cover. The great thing is that learning shapes is a pretty fun activity already, so you don’t have to worry about making it fun.
But if you’d like to add a little more hands-on learning to this objective, these apple-themed shapes worksheets for preschool are a great way to do it!

How to Use Shape Sorting Worksheets with Early Learners
There are a few ways you can use these shape sorting printables with your students.
Begin by asking if anyone can identify the shape on the apple in the top left of the worksheet.
Then introduce students to the shape word on the page. You can even have the class spell it out loud.
The directions are printed on each page. Read through them with your students and check for comprehension before beginning.
You might even want to complete one with the class to give them a head start.
Walk the students through the shape choices on the apple. See if they can spot the featured shape for that page.
After they’re done, have them count how many of the shapes they found. You can also ask them to identify the other shapes in the apple.
Ask how they could tell the difference between those shapes and the shape they were seeking for that worksheet.
If you’re using the blackline version, let students color in the apples, shape word, and apple shape activity too!
Turn this into a math center resource by laminating the pages and allowing students to use dry erase crayons to complete the activity.
