Looking for Shapes
Looking for shapes and talking about shape names helps children to see that the world is made up of shapes, and helps them get ready for kindergarten. Help your child find the shapes that are all around them—at home, at the playground, in buildings, in cars, or in books. Encourage them to use shape names. The shapes in the Looking for Shapes mini-book are oriented in different ways on purpose so children can see that the name and attributes of the shape stays the same regardless of its orientation.
