Cuando Encuentres

los Colores y las Formas:

Un Libro Ilustrado que es Físicamente Interactivo para Niños con Conceptos Basados ​​en Matemáticas Tempranas y STEM


Dale vuelta a las páginas y verás que divertidos son los colores y las formas. Cuando encuentres lo que buscas, el cuento te dira qué hacer. SACÚDETE y SALTA, MARCHA y GIRA, luego CORRE para compartir este libro con un amigo.


Este libro conceptual interactivo combina actividad física, ciencia fácil y matemáticas básicas al mostrar una forma única de comprender la causa y el efecto usando colores, formas y nuestros cuerpos en movimiento. Se requiere imaginación.

Turn the pages, and you will see how fun colors and shapes can be. Find what you seek, and when you are through, you will be told just what to do. Shake or spin around and around. Climb up the mountain and come back down. Balance on one leg, jump, or bend, then run to share this with a friend.


This interactive concept book for young children combines physical activity, simple science, and early math while demonstrating cause and effect using the body in motion. Children identify colors and shapes, move as instructed, then observe where the shapes shift as a result of their moves. They come to understand geometric concepts like shape, size, space, and position. For example, when children jump up, the shapes fly up and hang in the air. When children spin around, centrifugal force sends the shapes into the form of a circle. When children curl their bodies tightly, the shapes form a ball. Imagination is required!

Understanding colors, shapes, and spatial sense helps children communicate better, describe things more effectively, and problem-solve. They learn to think about attributes of objects and make observations about similarities and differences, which leads to the ability to sort and classify items based on easy-to-recognize characteristics. Letters and numbers are just complicated shapes children eventually learn to recognize and name. Why not have fun doing it?


Sample of open-ended inquiry to promote critical thinking:

"What do you notice on this page?"

“Describe what you see.”

“What happened to the shapes after you moved?”

“How did the shapes change?”

"Why do you think the shapes look like they do now?"

"What does this remind you of?”

"Show me what you can do with your shapes."

"How would you show me this shape using your body/a string?"

"How can you make your shape bigger/smaller?"
