  • I love these posters showing regular and irregular versions of shapes. Would it be possible to add posters for oblongs and squares, showing them in different orientations?

    • Hi lilmich,
      Thanks for your lovely request - I'll ask our design team to take a look and see if we can make this change for you :)

  • So useful to show a collection of irregular shapes as well as the regular.  It inspired my class to create their own irregular octagons with pop sticks and drawings.

  • These are great - could you make them as flashcards?  I use your regular shapes to teach the class but like these so they don't assume shapes are all regular.  Thank you :)

  • These would be fab mixed up to use as a sorting activity too

  • This is perfect as I think it's important to see both. However, I wish it would would show right up to a decagon. Could this be done? Thanks

  • As a display in the classroom to show that 2D shapes can be regular or irregular.

  • Computing with EYFS - cut out and laminate with tinfoil on reverse side of shape, hide them in a tuff spot filled with shredded paper / dirt / sand. Children to use metal detectors to find the shapes and sort them into groups. Groups can be determined by adult or set by child.

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

    , Oct 17th
  • 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

  • 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. :)

  • 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

A set of handy 2D shape posters, featuring both the regular and irregular shapes. Great for classroom decoration or for use as flashcards to discuss key characteristics of certain shapes.
