Exploring shapes

This week your child will be exploring shapes! Exploring and learning about shapes lays the groundwork for further geometry studies as your child moves through school. This week’s focus is on plane shapes (flat shapes). If you see 2 different sized circles ask your child, “How are they the same? How are they different?” Look at shapes in your pantry and ask, “What kind of shape do you see the most? Why do you think that is?” Count the sides and corners on objects around your home that are 3-dimensional shapes.
