Fun with Shapes with Roger Hargreaves

We are about finished with our shape study (introduction/review).  Most of my kiddos come in knowing their colors and shapes, but it’s fun to do a bit of a review, just to be certain.

One of my awesome Kindergarten colleagues uses the Roger Hargreaves books to review shapes.  She even has the most AMAZING puppets that another colleague made for her.  I wish I had a picture, but you have to trust me that they are adorable.  They are on my summer to-do list!

So each week, we read one of the Roger Hargreaves books.  (These were some of my favorites as a child, and when my oldest was little, I started scooping them up again!)

After we read the book (which have great character ed lessons), I drew the character and brainstormed other things that have the same shape.

Here are some of our charts:





I’m missing a few of my charts, but I’ll add them as soon as I snap pictures!

I LOVE seeing the kiddos refer to these anchor charts and I LOVE seeing them trying to draw the characters! They are so stinkin’ cute!!


  1. Who doesn't relate to at least 10 Mr men characters! You made me giggle. Have a great day.

  4. Hi there, I am loving what I am seeing. Are these all based on the Mr. Men books? I am completely unfamiliar with this author! I would like to incorporate this into my classroom, what books would be the best ones for me to purchase?

  5. I saw your anchor charts with these characters and made something similar for my kids and they just love them! Just wondering if there is something for the rectangle?

  6. I LOVE these and am making them right now! Just wondering if you had pics for any more shapes...

  7. Have you taken any pictures of a rectangle by any chance?
