Geometry at the preschool level involves identifying shapes and learning positional words. This guided lesson goes over these key concepts and vocabulary words, including top, bottom, up, down, in front of, behind, over, under and next to. Because geometry is one of the more visual math disciplines, it offers a chance for kids to build a fun, vibrant association with the subject of math.
This lesson includes 5 printable learning activities.
Preschool Shapes Song

There are preschool shapes all around! Sing along with your kids as they learn about rectangles, triangles, circles and squares.
