is one of our fabulous sponsors for our Back 2 School bash this year and they have an absolutely huge assortment of educational products for both your home and your classroom! Everything from arts, crafts, science, language, math, toys, school resources, and more! They sent me a pack of their Teach Me Shapes: Rubbing Plates
to review and giveaway to one of my readers!
Rubbing plates are very simple to use. Just lay a piece of paper over the rubbing plate, and rub the edge of your crayon on the paper over the plate. Voila! You’ve copied the shape onto your paper! What I really loved about these shapes rubbing plates is that they are textured! This is great for extra sensory input which is a big plus for my son!
When we first pulled these out to use, I simply let my son enjoy creating his shapes however he wanted. We then turned it into several different games with shapes, and then talked about collages! We then decided to make a collage with all different shapes on it (see below). You can use these rubbing plates as a fun way to encourage your child’s creativity and fine motor skills, as well as learning shapes from stars, triangles, circles, hearts, octagons, and more!
Sixteen rubbing plates are included with a teacher’s guide for $14.99. We have really enjoyed using these rubbing plates and have found multiple uses for them. These would be a great addition to an art center, daycare, or younger elementary school class as well! They are virtually indestructible and will last through a lot of abuse! These Shapes Rubbing Plates really encouraged my very non-artistic son to enjoy coloring and creating new artwork!
