Shapes & Geometry
What To Do
Use the objects around you to talk about shapes. You can do this while waiting for a bus or train or sitting in a waiting room. For instance, if there is a wall clock in the room, you can say: “I see a round shape in this room. What round shape do you see?”
What To Know
Make sure to name and describe the shapes you see as you play this game. For instance, if you notice a “Yield” sign, explain that you know it is a triangle because triangles have 3 straight sides and 3 corners or angles.
