Check out the new geometric printouts.
The basic three solid geometric shapes, circle, square and triangle are first introduced to preschool children. Use the three period lesson to teach the name of these shapes. Usually the shapes are introduce with the geometric cabinet. Most children can learn the solid shapes with the printouts we have provided. If your child needs a more concrete introduction you can use geometric puzzles.
Shapes have a practical application in observing our world. One fun way to use these different shapes is to study architecture. Geometric shapes are a building block in architecture. Rectangles or four sided shapes are found in windows, doors, walls, floors and ceilings. Circles are used in architecture in windows, domes and combined with a rectangle to make an arch. Polygons can be decorative features in windows and floor designs
