Learn Shapes through Creating a Shape Family




The idea of creating a Shape Family came through a string of comments started by Dina on the ABC Jesus Loves Me Facebook Group page.  I tweaked the idea and created these guys. 



I think they are super cute and my kids enjoyed them as well.  I also love how easy they are to make.  

 
While all four of the ABC Jesus Loves Me Preschool Curriculum cover or review shapes, I specifically added this activity to the 3 Year Curriculum.  




As you make each one, sticky-tack to a wall to create a family.  For fun and to add creativity, give each shape a name.  For an academic spin, begin the name with the same found the shape begins.  (i.e. Cindy Circle, Olivia Oval, Henry Heart)



If the creative juices are flowing add hair with yarn, a nose, shoes, hands, etc.  Dress up these little buddies as much as you want.

How will you use the Shape Family?
