I remember how much shapes were hard to remember and I always associated them with maths and geometry when I was younger... Nothing I am very passionate about unfortunately! Therefore rolling a ball and saying on which shape it lands is a much more fun and interesting way to remember shapes!
The manipulative for this weeks #ToolsForLearning is small toys. I couldn't resist making a play activity based on Adam's favourite small toy of all time - the toy car! As we have very few shape adventures I decided to create a Learning Shapes With Toy Cars activity.
Learn about shapes using paper plates and yarn. Great preschooler activity for kids and a great way to develop their understanding of various shapes, colours and their properties. Using yarn helps build on fine motor skills. - Laughing Kids Learn
Shape Monsters || This is the most successful activity we have tried in the past two weeks. She loved this!! I was laughing so hard (watch the video in the following post to see why). She completed the entire box of shapes & was still engaged. I highly recommend this activity
