The circle shape is fun to teach. Kids love playing with Nerf balls, bouncing balls, and pretty much anything else that can be easily kicked or thrown.
Be sure to use the link at the bottom of this page to find ideas on games and activities you can do to reinforce the circle concept.
Learning can't be all fun AND games.
There are worksheets to be done, and while they aren't necessarily games, they can still be fun. Use the shapes worksheets below to introduce your child to the circle.
The first worksheet builds upon handwriting skills and recognizing shapes in everyday objects. Have your child trace the circles on the dotted lines and then color them in. At the bottom of the page, your child will need to circle all of the objects that are circles.
The next paper has five rows of shapes. Each row has various shapes in them--triangles, squares, and circles. In each row, the student needs to color in the circles.
The 3rd worksheet will build upon your child's counting skills while recognizing shapes. There are three rows and in each row there are hidden circles. Count the circles for each row and then write the answer on the box provided.
The final shape worksheet is a fun maze full of triangles, circles, and squares. Make a path from the sun to the moon by coloring in all of the circles that connect.
There are more shapes to discover. Try using the lessons below to teach your preschooler about 2D shapes.
