Created by a child development specialist and educator with a PhD in education and a passion to help children fall in love with math!
This jumbo preschool and toddler activity book helps children learn important facts about shapes while having fun tracing, drawing, and coloring the animals. Children will learn the following shapes: circles, squares, rectangles, triangles, semi-circles, ovals, rhombuses, trapezoids, pentagons, and hexagons.
As the shapes are described on each page of this workbook, children will learn:
- Shapes can be named and categorized based on their characteristics. It’s important for children to learn the names of common shapes. However, children can learn much more about shapes than just their names! Children should also learn the characteristics of each shape. For example, children should practice counting the number of sides and corners (angles) of each shape.
- Children are often exposed to prototypical shapes, such as equilateral triangles. It is important to show children non-prototypical shapes of various sizes and orientations. This helps children focus on each shape’s defining characteristics.
- Shapes can be put together (composed) and separated (decomposed) to make new shapes. For example, you can put together two right triangles to make a rectangle. Children should have practice combining, rotating, and comparing shapes so that they learn the part/whole relationship among shapes.
Children can make their own shape animals!
After tracing the shapes, children color and draw the animals. At the end of the book, children can cut and paste the shape cutouts to make their very own animals!
