Tips for Teaching Shapes to Preschoolers
Learning to recognize and identify shapes is an important early learning skill for preschool students. Fortunately, there are lots of fun ways to begin formal shape lessons with your little learners this holiday season!
Learning to recognize, identify, and draw shapes helps preschoolers make sense of the world around them and prepares them for more complex mathematical concepts in kindergarten and elementary school.
Once your preschooler has mastered two-dimensional shapes, they’ll be ready for three-dimensional shapes like cubes, cones, and spheres.
Shape crafts for preschoolers make it easy to help your students practice these important early learning skills in the classroom and at home.
