The shape lesson is a key lesson taught under Mathematics Concepts. In the shapes lesson, children are introduced to different types of shapes. Among them, the basic shapes that are mainly introduced include the circle, semi-circle, square, rectangle, triangle, oval, star, heart, and crescent shape. But you can introduce different shapes to the children as you like. This learning page allows you to introduce 12 different types of shapes. In addition to the shapes mentioned above, you can introduce three new shapes to them through this learning page: rhombus, pentagon, hexagon, and octagon shapes.

Now let us examine why we need to learn shapes in basic education.

  • Introducing shapes to children in primary education serves as a foundational step in learning mathematics in secondary education. In the future, children will encounter different types of math problems with shapes. Shapes are fundamental to many mathematical operations, such as geometry, polygon study, perimeter and area calculations, symmetry exploration, transformations, coordinate geometry, geometric construction, and spatial reasoning. This early introduction ensures that children are very familiar with shapes and provides a familiar experience that can be used to solve complex math problems in the future.
  • Providing the ability to describe various materials seen in everyday life. The all things we see around us have a certain shape. A round clock, a rectangular television, an oval egg, a square chessboard, and a semicircular heart are just a few examples. Identifying shapes is very important for children to describe what they see.
  • To develop certain artistic skills of children. Shapes are most useful for children in drawing and building various artistic creations. You can teach children how to easily draw a picture by combining different shapes. With time, they will get used to drawing those shapes smoothly and vividly. All you have to do is teach them the ease of drawing with easy-to-draw shapes. Children can learn to create using different materials. Children create with different types of sheets, clay, paper plates, discarded plastic, natural flowers and leaves, and paints. You can direct the children to make wonderful creations by cutting, folding, and manipulating these materials in different shapes.
  • To develop children’s knowledge. shapes introduce new concepts to them, expanding their vocabulary. As they progress through basic education, children are prepared to store information in their memory. Therefore, this series of lessons contributes to further developing their knowledge.
  • To lead to different activities. Teachers get the opportunity to build various activities through the lesson on shapes. Also, even difficult activities can be given to children very easily by using shapes. Therefore, you do not forget to provide children with shape-based activities at school. Practice cutting, coloring, drawing, and handwriting practice, the shapes will help you with the activities provided. Therefore, it is very important to introduce shapes to direct children to different activities

Next, let’s examine the assignments provided on this learning page. There are 12 assignments including different shapes, arranged playfully like Muppets to capture children’s interest. Kids can enjoy coloring each shape and also have the opportunity to practice writing the name of each shape along the lines provided under each illustration. The shapes included here are circle, triangle, square, rectangle, semicircle, oval, star, heart, diamond, crescent, pentagon, hexagon, and octagon. You can compile these 12 shapes into a booklet and give it to your child. They will appreciate this shape assignment book.
