Push Pin Shapes

There are so many great reasons to have push-pin work in the classroom, such as developing fine-motor skills, concentration, precision, confidence (a pre-scissors tool for the younger ones)...plus, in this case, reinforcement of shape recognition. Shown here are Shape Book examples with the Montessori Metal Insets and Geometric Cabinet. The use of a corn cob holders are ideal for this type of work (see tool in center).  

Thanks to the PNMA 2011 Sharing Fair for another great idea!
