    Helping children to identify irregular shapes

  • Oct 17th

    Encouraging children to count the sides to identify the shape. Really useful- Thank you.

  • Oct 4th

    Helping students to identify the names of the different shapes, count the number of sides, corners and show students what angles are. Ask students what colours the shapes are and also could use this set as a wall display. I teach EAL students and can use this and other resources in many way studnets are new to english could create a snap or pairs activity using this resource. Could edit the resource with the name of the shape in English and in also translate this resource in many different languages. I have students that speak/read/write as many as 15 different languages. My rating is a four there was an error on the page an it would not enable me to rate this product beyond a one star.

    Thank you twinkl because I have been needing to find a resource that shows irregular and regular shapes for maths

  • Oct 3rd

    Thanks Twinkl for this fantastic resource. Just what I needed to jazz up my classroom especially now that my kids have been introduced to the word 'quadrilaterals'!

    Hi morpheuslaughing, thank you for your comment. I have passed it on to our resource team for them to have another look at this. :)

  • May 17th

    Um, I'm pretty sure some of the responses and feedback to this resource need clarifying. I was under the impression a rectangle IS an IRREGULAR polygon as it only exhibits one of the features of what makes a regular polygon - that is it's internal angles ARE the same, BUT it's sides ARE NOT the same length. A Square has all sides and all angles the same so it is a regular polygon. Likewise, you can have both regular and irregular triangles, pentagons, hexagons, heptagons, octagons etcetc
