### How to Use the Pirate Shapes Tracing Pages

You can simply print the pages and let your student trace the gold coin 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 gold coin shapes.

You can try yarn, pipe cleaners, playdough, or even small yellow 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.

Make this activity extra fun by giving your student some golden chocolate coins to eat!

### Benefits of the Pirate Shapes Tracing Pages

You can use the pages to teach the shape names to your student. “Look at this shape. It has eight sides. Let’s count them. What is the name of a shape that has eight sides? That’s right! It’s an octagon.”

You can also use these pages to help your student analyze two-dimensional shapes. Ask questions. Is an oval like a circle? How are they the same? How are they different? How many sides does a triangle have? How many sides does a square have? Which one of the shapes looks the most like a gold coin? Which shape looks like a pirate’s hat? Which shape resembles a pirate ship’s steering wheel?

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

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