These worksheets cover shapes for kids in Preschool and Kindergarten--basic 2D shapes like squares, circles, triangles and more.
Older students will want to check out the 3D shapes covering cubes, cylinders, and pyramids among others.
Check out the shapes homepage (link at bottom of this page) for more shapes.
These worksheets will focus on just the square shape.
The first paper is a tracing and identifying activity. Have your child trace the square shape using the dotted lines and then draw one 'free hand' using the corner dots as a guide.
The next printable is a coloring task. There are five rows with various shapes in each row. Have your child color in the squares.
You could also adapt this worksheet to the other shapes as well, for example, have your student color all the squares red, the triangles orange, and so on for the other shapes.
The third paper has three rows of objects. For each row, have your child count the squares and then write them in the box provided.
The final activity is a maze. Move the fish from the top of the maze to her grassy house at the bottom by coloring in the squares that touch each other.
