If you want a sturdier circle to use as a card or tag, make sure you print these out on cardstock.
Do you have a small business? You can easily use these circles to design labels to use for your logo or adding prices to your products. Simply print onto sticker paper and cut!
The different types of educational activities you could do with these are endless! Here are a couple of quick ideas:
- Use as flashcards for letters, numbers or sight words
- Print on colored paper to decorate bulletin boards or the classroom
- Use for pattern recognition activities – students could create their own repeating patterns in the circle grid.
- Have students draw as many things they can think of that are shaped like a circle, such as a basketball, dinner plate, or even a pie or pizza.
- Practice fine motor skills by having students cut out the circles to use in a craft project
- Use the 1 inch circle templates as markers for bingo or other games
