Shape recognition is something that is learnt from a very early age. Young children love to demonstrate with pride how they can decipher basic shapes from each other. Even young toddlers like to show how they know which is a circle or which is a square.
Our range of toys and games reinforces this basic knowledge but also adds a challenging note as slightly more complex forms are introduced.
Shape recognition allows children to understand properties such as curves or angles. It improves understanding of letter formation. In addition, it helps with spacial awareness.
When your children are sorting a triangle from a circle, they are also observing differences. When honing observational skills, children learn to decipher these differences which can be used in other ways. You can ask what the difference is between the shapes. As they explain the difference they are learning to communicate and explain.
They are using fine motor skills to move or place their toys into sorters. You can introduce and reinforce the concept in a myriad of ways from specific toys to classroom décor. Our rugs bring shapes into the classroom in a comfortable and easy manner. You can ask the children to sit on a specific shape or choose their favourite.
However you decide to utilise our range, you are certain to find something to suit your requirements and support your teaching.
