Shapes play an important role in helping children categorize things around them. Understanding shapes is an important concept in learning Math, Science, and Reading. In discovering shapes, children observe what is the same and different and this allows them to compare objects.
The children in PK3/4 C enjoyed identifying, comparing and choosing their preferred shapes during our different shape activities. During our kite making activity, the children chose the shape they preferred to use to make a kite. After decorating them, they took their kites out to fly on a windy day. The children also had fun in hunting for different shapes in the playground. They pointed to different shapes that they recognized and moved eagerly from one place to another in search of more shapes.
