2D shapes are a child's first introduction to basic math skills. Triangles, circles, squares, and rectangles are the most common shapes, but there are plenty more that a child will learn his or her first year of Preschool.
Here you will find worksheets that focus on the Triangle shape.
You can find the rest of the shapes using the link at the bottom of this page. For now, let's focus on the triangle.
There are currently 4 triangle worksheets that you can download and/or print out.
The first sheet gives the child a chance to trace the triangle and then draw line segments to create his own. There are four different triangle outlines. Have your child trace the dotted lines and/or free hand between the points to create triangles of her own.
Below that there are various objects. Have your child circle the ones that are triangle shapes.
The second worksheet shows rows of shapes and asks the child to color the triangles only.
Next is a full-color worksheet where the child will need to count the triangles in each row and then write the number in the box provided.
The final worksheet is a fun maze. Have your students color in all of the triangles to create a path from the groundhog to his shadow.
