Shape Game for Mary Had a Little Lamb




This game is similar to Candy Land.  It can be played in a variety of ways
depending on the age or skill level of the children.

The point of the game is for the children to get their sheep to school
where Mary is.
Print the game board pages.  Cut them out and glue them to a 17" x 22"
piece of tag board connecting the pieces to make the game board as shown.  Laminate.  Print four pages of shape cards-1 and one page of shape
cards-2, cut and laminate the shape cards too.
Print the sheep.  Fold in half putting wrong sides together.  Now fold the bottom rectangles of the sheep out putting right sides together.  Glue the sheep sections together making a game piece.  These should stand on the game board as shown.

To play as a shape game:
Have the children pick a card, identify the color and shape.  If they get the shape and color correct, have them move their sheep to the next similar
shape on the trail. 

To play as a addition game:
Print the addition cards of your choice.  Cut and Laminate.
Have the children pick an addition card.  Have them answer the card.  If they
get the answer correct, have them choose a shape card.  Then have them move
their sheep to the next similar shape on the trail.

To play as an alphabet recognition game:
Print the alphabet cards.  Cut and Laminate.
Have the children pick an alphabet card.  Have them identify the letter.  If they
identify the letter correctly, have them choose a shape card.  Then have them
move their sheep to the next similar shape on the trail.

To play as a sight word review game:
Print the sight word cards of your choice.  Cut and Laminate.
Have the children pick a sight word card.  Have them read the word.  If they
 read the word correctly, have them choose a shape card.  Then have them
move their sheep to the next similar shape on the trail.
