Preschoolers are taught colors and shapes even before they start learning numbers. Teaching kids about shapes at a young age enables them to later on distinguish numbers and letters. Shapes and colors are those attributes of the world that children start to notice early. So when we give them this information, they use it while observing and categorizing things. It also helps them to quiz geometry skills. And these skills can be helpful for them in their academic career. Shape transformations and symmetry are useful too. So, when you teach children basic shapes you are actually laying a foundation for developing their geometric skills. Turtle Diary has designed shapes videos for children in Kindergarten to Fifth Grade. These videos focus on teaching children the concepts of shapes, radius, diameter, vertices, quadrilaterals, and angles. Beside these videos, you can also use these ideas to teach children the concept of shapes. Online games can be used to engage children in a fun way of learning shapes. Work with them so that they develop a knowledge that will facilitate them throughout life.
