How do you explain shapes in kindergarten?
Kindergarten students are learning about the world around them and are able to recognize many different basic shapes. You can use flash cards to show your child a shape, such as a square. Ask them to trace the square with their finger and count the four even sides and the four corners. Show them the flash card again and see if they can remember the name of the shape. Play scavenger hunt games by showing your child a flash card with a shape they have learned and have them find an object in the room that matches the shape. Helping your child to understand shapes will develop their critical thinking skills and encourage a deeper understanding of how to identify and categorize theobjects around them.
