Learning shapes aids in building a multitude of skills such as problem solving, spatial reasoning, identifying and organizing visual information. It also helps children learn skills in other curriculum areas including reading, math, and science. A strong understanding of shapes can aid in noticing the differences in the shapes of letters and numbers, which in turn help with reading, writing, and mathematics. In addition, being able to distinguish the difference between each shape requires children to focus on specific characteristics, further developing their observational and categorization skills which are essential in science.
Golden Kids Learning has colorful and vibrant Shape Charts that feature the shape name with the corresponding shape. This will help familiarize children with the basic shapes and develop the foundational skills. These charts can be hung up on walls or put into school folders for daily review.
