About Intro to Shapes

When children learn to recognize and describe shapes,  they’re developing an important foundation for later math.  With practice, children will start learning to name and recognize shapes, but knowing the name of a shape is just a small piece of knowing about that shape. So whenever you talk with children about shapes, we encourage you to ask and talk about the attributes, or characteristics, of shapes.

There are 60 cards in the shape card deck. The cards have the numerals 1-10 on them along with one of six shapes: circle, triangle, square, rhombus, rectangle, or hexagon. There are also four Wild Shapes cards in the deck — these cards have all six shapes printed on them.
