Polka Dotted Classroom Labels

Okay I admit it, I have a thing for polka dots. So this year all of my individual labels in each center, classroom labels, and center signs ALL have a polka dotted border. I color coordinated each learning center in my PreK classroom. For example the Discovery Center (Science) is colored coordinated using the purple polka dotted scheme. All the individual labeled items, center sign, mini-word wall, and work cards all have the same theme. I did this for two reasons. First, I am kinda OCD about having things match, and second the students know which center an object comes from by matching the color coded labels. Pretty neat I think. So as a FREE download I am offering a set of (11) editable different colored polka dotted frames for you to use in your classroom. Keep reading for more information.

Polka Dotted Classroom Labels are a set of brightly colored polka dotted frames to use in your classroom for personal use only!

You could also use the labels for the following:

  • Classroom labels

  • Small individual picture frames.

The packet contains the following:

  • (11) Different colored polka dotted frames. There are four to a page.
  • Each label is editable using Adobe Acrobat. The text is set to auto so it will shrink as you type. Each frame has (2) text boxes. The first is for English language labels, the second is for second language labels.

All About Shapes Activity Packet

All About Shapes Activity Packet is for students to discriminate, recognize, sort, and match shapes using both clip art images and photos.

You could also use the activity for the following:

  • Shape recognition
  • Matching
  • Sorting
  • Classifying
  • Listening and following directions
  • Cooperative play.

The packet contains the following:

  • (9) Cookie jars with the following shapes: 
    • rectangle
    • square
    • oval
    • circle
    • triangle
    • diamond
    • star
    • octagon
    • heart
  • (6) Cookie per shape using both clip art and photos to represent each shape.


  • It is suggested to print all pieces on card stock and laminate for durability. 
  • One suggested assembly method is making a file folder game. First, cut out each cookie jar and glue to the inside of a file folder. (2) cookie jars can be placed on one page. (1) file folder will hold (6) cookie jars. To add pages to the file folder for the remaining cookie jars, cut a file folder in half . Glue the remaining cookie jars to the file folder. Laminate the file folders. Then the additional page can be attached by using clear packing tape and taping the page to the file folder. 
  • Laminate each page of cookie game pieces and cut out. The cookies can be attached to each cookie jar by using Velcro. Store the game pieces in a ziploc bag stapled to the file folder.
