This interactive concept book combines physical activity, simple science, and early math by showing us a unique way to celebrate the wonder of colors, shapes, and our bodies in motion. Imagination is required!

Shapes activity page to color,
cut, position, and reposition.

 

Benefits:

  • Recognizing and identifying colors

  • Recognizing geometric shapes and their characteristics

  • Exploring and describing spatial relationships

  • Developing and utilizing spatial memory

  • Learning about and experiencing spatial transformations

STEM: Combines early math, shape exploration, and cause and effect with physical activity. Identify the shapes, move as instructed, then observe how the shapes have changed as a result. 

 

When young children learn about shapes, they practice geometry skills. Add in colors, and they have the ability to sort items based on easy to recognize attributes. 

 

Understanding shapes and spatial sense helps young children communicate better, describe things more effectively, and problem solve. Here are some open-ended questions and statements you can use for extensions.

 

  • "What do you notice on this page?"

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

  • "How can you move like that?"

  • "How would you show me this using your body?"

  • "What if you got a friend to help?"

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

  • "What will happen if you add more shapes?"

  • "Why do you think the shapes look like that now?"

  • "Why do you think the shapes might fall?"

  • "What if you wanted to make a different shape?"

  • "What does this remind you of?


Letters and numbers are just complicated shapes, and when children learn to recognize shapes and pathways, they are well on their way to naming all of the numbers and letters, as well as recognizing many of their first small words.
