You can introduce your child to 13 types of shapes through this learning page. All those shapes are two-dimensional and are the basic shapes we see in day-to-day life. Here are 13 pages of shape learning assignments. The special feature of these learning shape assignment pages is that multiple types of assignments related to shapes can be given to children on the same page. These assignment pages give your child the opportunity to color the shapes, draw lines around them, and learn about shapes through everyday objects, helping them also learn the names of each shape.  Well, next, I will explain to you what the different shapes are given to you.

First, you are given a circular shape. The circular shape is called “Circle”. An image shows you how the shape should be drawn and arrows show you how to draw it. On this page, you will see circular objects that you come across in everyday life. That is, the tire, coin, button, and cookies have been introduced to you as round-shaped things. In addition to this, there are many other things, to teach the child what they are. For example, introduce the circle shape by showing the child things like the moon, the plate, a round clock, etc. Then complete by drawing the circle shapes given at the bottom of this page.

Next, your child will be introduced to the half-circle. On this assignment page, you are provided with the opportunity to color and practice drawing semicircles by following the given lines. Many semicircular objects surround us. Besides the examples given here, further teach your child about them.
