So how do we learn our shapes and have fun? We share excellent books, of course!
Another great book, My Heart is like a Zoo by Michael Hall takes one shape, the heart, and uses it to make a variety of animals. You and your child will both be amazed at how versatile the heart can be!
And finally, Dot by Patricia Intriago is a study in how small changes to the shape of a dot can completely change what it means to the viewer. Teaching your child to focus on the small cues that make shapes different from each other will be helpful to them as they begin to sort out which shape belongs to which letter.
And when you're done reading, be sure to take your shapes on the road. Discovering them here, there and everywhere is fun for everyone!
