Grade 1 Worksheets
Use basic shapes and keep it simple for the preschoolers when teaching them about shapes. Shapes are everywhere around us and as a result there are many objects and everyday items that we can use to illustrate the differences or similarities between different shapes.
You can use fun kids songs about shapes, books about shapes, coloring pages, worksheets and real life examples of different shapes. Make it fun and create for the preschool children when learning about shapes.
-focus on one shape at a time
