How to Use the Hedgehog Shapes Tracing Worksheets

You can simply print the pages and let your student trace the hedgehog shapes with a crayon, pencil, or marker.

However, if you want to reuse the pages, laminate them or use them with Dry Erase Sleeves or page protectors and a dry erase marker.

If your student isn’t ready to write, your student can use a variety of manipulatives to “trace” the hedgehog shapes. You can try yarn, pipe cleaners, playdough, or even small brown candies to place around the shapes.

Here is a sample of the tracing pages with Wikki Stix. Wikki Stix are waxed yarn, and they are a fun manipulative to use with these tracing pages.

Benefits of the Hedgehog Shapes Worksheets

You can use the pages to teach the shape names to your student. “Look at this shape. It has four equal sides. Let’s count them. What is the name of a shape that has four equal sides? Yes! A square.”

You can also use these pages to help your student analyze two-dimensional shapes. Ask questions. Is a square like a rectangle? How are they the same? How are they different? How many sides does a rectangle have? How many sides does a square have? Which one of the shapes on the pages looks the most like a real hedgehog?

The tracing pages will also help your student learn the names of shapes. Ten shapes are included in this printable set:

• diamond
• rectangle
• square
• circle
• star
• oval
• triangle
• heart
• hexagon
• octagon
