Shapes; one of the most fun ways to watch your preschooler's development unfold.
Working with shapes will begin with shape identification, develop into spatial awareness, and continue on to understanding how shapes fit together in our world.
Why Manipulate Shapes Now?
By Kindergarten, children will be asked to:
Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.
Model shapes in the world by building shapes from components (e.g., sticks and clay balls) and drawing shapes.
You do not have to master this in Preschool, but this is a FUN way to begin the introduction now.
