This little reader does it all! It lets kids practice reading and sight words, and it’s also a super fun math activity that lets them practice creating shapes in an engaging, hands-on way! It even builds fine motor skills. Geometry just got a little more exciting!

What you’ll need;
-The Washi Shapes! Printable reader
-Colorful washi tape: (these are the sets I used. Both are MUCH better value than I’ve been able to find in stores!)
Download and print out the reader (print double sided with “short edge binding”)
Click here to download: Washi SHAPES! volume 1
Line it up so that the cover faces down on the bottom, and pages 1 and 3 are facing up.
Fold in half and staple the middle (a saddle stapler will do a much nicer job here! This is the one I used)
Give to your child, along with some rolls of washi tape, and let them have fun creating the shapes with washi tape!
But wait! There’s more!
If you loved volume 1, make sure to head over to my Teachers Pay Teachers store, where you can snag Volumes 2 and 3!
The shapes included are:
Volume 1: Square, rectangle, triangle, circle
Volume 2: Trapezoid, rhombus, hexagon, oval
Volume 3: Diamond, right triangle, pentagon, arc
If you’re going to make printable readers, you probably want a place to store them, but luckily I’ve got you covered! My Easy Book Boxes are just the thing- easy and basically free to make!
