Peek Inside

Middle Brother (age 4.5) loves art projects so, even though he’d completed one of the interactive shape books in his preschool class in the morning, he begged to make the second one at home that afternoon. He colored the cover and cut along the dotted lines to make three flaps.

Lifting each flap, he drew the shape and glued four pictures of real world examples below. A unicycle, compass, Earth and baseball below the circle, a window beneath the square…

(There’s a hexagon, rhombus, trapezoid version too.)

Later, I pulled out a set of playful shape sandwiches. Middle Brother named the shape of each sandwich and then we talked about its characteristics: how many sides it had, how many corners…

He clipped the picture that matched and then grabbed the next card in the pile.

2D Shape Clip Cards

When his older brother (age 6.5) came home from kindergarten later that day, he worked on the clip cards with words. It was a simple way to work on reading and math at the same time!

Over the next few weeks, we reinforced the names and characteristics of 2D shapes by coloring real world objects by shape,
