This is where the fun begins. As children read the short sentence that focuses on the sight word ‘see’, they will also learn the name of the shape. They can circle or underline the name of the shape if they wish. Then they can use a crayon or marker to trace the shape. They could also create this shape out of playdough if they wish.

Once they have grasped the shape, they can enjoy coloring in and decorating the pirate on the page.
