Today we are learning about 2D Shapes.
Activity - Shape hunt!
Show your child the shapes circle, square, rectangle and triangle. Can they identify each shape?
Talk about each shapes special features such as how many sides it has. Ask your child to go on a hunt around your home looking for shapes. You may need to help them at first by asking them what shape is the door? What shape are the windows? What shape is the clock? See how many different shapes you can find.
Look, listen and note how well your child can:
- Identify each shape
- Find shapes in the environment
Enjoy singing 'The Shapes Song'
What different shapes can you see in the pictures during the song?
Enjoy playing the Shape Monster game on the link below:
Shape Monsters is a fun, interactive 2D shapes game where children need to identify and match circles, rectangles, squares and triangles.
Each Shape Monster only 'eats' shapes which match its own body shape. When a child correctly selects a shape, that Shape Monster audibly reinforces the name of the shape.
