As a parent, you have so many opportunities to help develop your little learner’s mind. From the ABCs to the 123s, there’s simply so much to teach them. With all of the options, it’s easy to either overlook or downplay certain topics … don’t let shapes be one of those!
Why is it important to teach your kid his or her shapes? Well, here’s what child development expert Jennie Ito has to say on that, “Learning shapes not only helps children identify and organize visual information, it helps them learn skills in other curriculum areas including reading, math, and science. For example, an early step in understanding numbers and letters is to recognize their shape. Learning shapes also helps children understand other signs and symbols.”
Pretty powerful stuff, right?
