One of Jonah’s favorite ways to learn is by using toys.
We make our letter of the week with Legos, and we often use cars for counting. This week we took that to another level by combining counting with shapes.
I used painters’ tape to make several of the shapes we have already learned on the floor. (As far as I know and have experienced, painters’ tape does not damage carpet in any way, but please test it out yourself before you make too many lines/shapes)
Then we put the same number of cars in each shape as the number of sides it had. Both Jonah (age 5) and Matthew (age 3) enjoyed doing this. Hannah (age 1) enjoyed disrupting her brothers’ counting as much as possible and moving the cars. Afterwards, they ended up playing with the cars and the shapes for quite awhile. All in all, this was a fun quick way to review our shapes!
