Tot School Rectangle Activities

Archer was 23 Months
We have been working on Shape Themes in Tot School. You can see the Shape Themes "Curriculum" post here.
This is what Archer's desk area looked like. The posters are from The Learning Effect. The shelf included a couple Non-Fiction Sight Words books, a Meet the Sight Words book, an alphabet book, a blends book and an Animal Antics Reader. I also included a Mathstart Book and some books about spring. His artwork from the week is hanging as well.
Play dough included some fondant cutters, a rectangle stamp and a texture block from a dough set we have.
Coloring some rectangles. (Free to print here). He likes colored pencils, but he does not push down hard enough for them to show up well.
Using stamps and markers to decorate a rectangle.
Oval dot art with Do a Dot Markers (Free to print here). Big brother helped, which is why so many are actually in the dots!
Tracing rectangles. He still needs my help to do this, so I cannot get a picture. (Free to print here).
Playing on the cargo net for his Pikler's Triangle.
This was his sensory bin from last week, but his is still loving foam letters in water beads!
Shapes on his light table.
Playroom shelves include both theme related tot school activities and other toys, usually open ended. The goal is to work on things like fine motor skills, visual spacial skills, math and literacy (and keep him entertained). I have been trying to also include one of our toddler games, to get him more used to playing games with us.

The white board had some magna-tile rectangles. The top had some rectangle fact cards and opaque and translucent rectangular prisms. Left shelves had Lucky Ducks, shape turtles, his mailbox and a chunky puzzle. The right shelves had some domino pattern cards, 2 part puzzles, spring vocabulary cards, a cloud counting activity, inchimals and cars with highway oval (from Making Learning Fun).
Pocket chart rectangle facts (free here).
Playing with his shapes (solid and translucent)
Lucky Ducks. He still doesn't get "winning" but he enjoys playing.
Domino pattern cards. (Free to print here)
2 part puzzles
Spring vocabulary cards. (Free to print here). He really seems to prefer matching them in a pocket chart vs on the ground. I think it lets him see them better.
Cloud counting game (Free to print here). I used number tiles, but you could use even slip it in a page protector and use dry erase markers.
