# Kindergarten Shapes Worksheets (Geometry) ### Introduction

Students work with two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes in a variety of ways. They name some and recognize the difference between two and three dimensions. They describe the location of shapes and objects in relation to each other (e.g. in front of, behind, beside, etc.). They identify shapes that are similar or different from each other based on a given attribute, and they combine shapes to make larger shapes.

Shapes are used to teach about position. Students identify shapes that are above, below, beside, in front of, or behind another shape. Reinforce this position language by having students place objects on a table. Use this language to give directions. For example, Place the teddy bear in behind the toy car.

Students will also name and describe shapes based on the number of sides or corners and how many sides are the same length. Draw and cut out the following shapes: circle, triangle, square, rectangle, hexagon. You can include these shapes in the position activity described above to give students practice identifying shapes. For example, one direction you could give is to Place the circle below the square. While playing this position game, have students describe the shapes they are using.
