We read the Friendly Shapes iPad story developed by Tab Table Ltd. This was a good revision tool for shapes and colors. We also had an opportunity to help a student who was absent when students learned about shapes identify the different shapes. Students particularly liked the activity at the end of the story practicing their dragging skills as they had to fit all shapes in their correct places.
We then had lots of fun solving tangrams to build a truck tractor and a rocket among other things. We used the Toy Tangrams iPad app developed by Tab Table Ltd. We definitely flexed our problem solving skills. I would definitely recommend these two apps for Kindergartners to practice telling their shapes.
