Things Are Taking Shape: Three Ways to Help Your Child Learn Shapes
During this year, your child is learning about different shapes, matching them with a shape that's identical in size and orientation, and then learning to identify a triangle, for example, in any size or shape. He'll be able to copy these shapes, first by looking at an example of the shape and then doing it by memory.
