It’s fairly simple to prepare, each bark tree can be cut up with the corresponding cards and then placed on the sorting mat. You could laminate the sheets before cutting them up and then placing them in a file folder or plastic slip for storage!
The cards can be placed in a small group where kids can start sorting them according to their shapes. Two cards with real images of items used in real life are include for each of the shapes in the file circle, rectangle, square, diamond, and a triangle. IF you find that this is too advanced for your group of kiddos, then just opt for using the shapes only. Once the kids get to a level where they can cognitively identify the shapes to real objects – then include those particular cards.
An example is provided here with the iPhone and the calculator in the rectangle shape sort mat. This shape sorting printable can be done in a file folder too, super fun and easy! Grab the file folder and paste the ‘tree shapes’in there. Use velcro to add dots to the shape cards and have the kids sorting the shapes onto the corresponding tree.
