Week 1 of this independent study packet for preschoolers contains everything you need to keep young learners engaged on key skills, from practicing uppercase letters to learning two-dimensional shapes.
Reinforce your child’s understanding of geometry and 2D shapes while learning about the artist Mary Blair and her amazing contributions to many loved movies, books, and characters throughout her career.
Geometry in kindergarten involves the basics of measurement, shapes, and spatial reasoning. Designed and reviewed by teachers, this guided lesson gives kids an overview of these concepts with clear instruction and engaging exercises. Geometry practice in kindergarten can help bolster the skills needed for higher-level concepts in the later grades. You can give kids even more practice by downloading and printing the accompanying worksheets.
Your child has been incorporating the study of 2-D shapes into their play time since they were old enough to focus their site on objects. Now you can help them solidify that understanding with exercises and worksheets that clearly instruct a shape’s name and qualities, while still leaving room for games. That detailed knowledge of shapes will be very useful later on when it is time to learn geometry.
They may be flat, but that doesn’t mean learning about 2-D shapes can’t be fun. From rectangles to hexagons, students can learn the many dimensions (both width and height!) of 2-D shapes from a variety of exercises and activities. They may not be thick, but there is plenty to work with. For younger students, resources help identify and draw basic 2-D shapes, such as circles, squares and triangles. As students advance, worksheets help them understand more complicated categories of 2-D shapes such as polygons and parallelograms and their properties. A variety of worksheets and hands-on exercises ensure that there is something that will help you teach the fundamentals of 2-D shapes. You can even introduce the concept of symmetry by having students create a colorful butterfly.
