List of shapes: circle, square, rectangle, parallelogram, trapezoid, pentagon, hexagon, octagon, sphere, cube, rectangular prism, triangular prism, cube, and cylinder.
Gather a few objects from around f the house that can represent common geometric shapes.
Ex. coaster-square ball-sphere
paper- rectangle Kleenex box- rectangular prism
plate- circle die- cube
Some shapes may have to be drawn or created: triangle, cone, pyramid (triangular prism).
Go over the shapes that each object represents. Go over the number of side the shapes have. Some are flat (two dimensional) and some are not flat (three dimensional). Count the faces of the three dimensional objects. Have the child trace the shape with their fingers. Afterwards, have your child draw the shape.
