Cat Shapes Matching Printable Activity
These simple print and go Cat Shapes Matching Activity Pages are great for a cat themed unit study or a pets themed unit study.
They are perfect for practicing shape recognition. If you have the time, sit down with your student and introduce or review the names of the shapes. You may want to count the sides of some shapes together. (How many sides do you see on the diamond cat? Let’s count them!)
Ten shapes are included in this Cat Shapes Matching Activity: oval, triangle, hexagon, heart, square, circle, diamond, rectangle, star, and octagon.
The goal of this cats shape matching activity is to locate a shape on the left side of the page and then to find the same shape on the right side of the page. Draw a line from one to the other and match the star cat to the star mouse.
You can encourage your student to get the job done by pretending that the hungry cat is on the hunt–looking for the mouse. Alternatively, if you have a sensitive child, you could pretend the octagon cat is looking for her friend, octagon mouse.
Benefits of the Cat Shapes Matching Activity
These printable Cat Shapes Matching Activity Pages promote shape recognition. You can also use them to boost fine motor skills. Students will use fine motor skills to draw lines from the cat shapes to the mouse shapes.
Additionally, if you use the black and white version provided in the download, your student can use fine motor skills to color the cats and the mice.
If you want to reuse the set, simply put the page in a dry-erase pocket and let your student use a dry erase marker.
