The first in another new section of resources on 2-D shape. Here we have some great pages which will help your young child to recognise 2-D shapes. Your child should be able to recognise four basic shapes: circles, squares, rectangles and triangles. These maths worksheets have plenty of interesting pictures just made up of these shapes. Good extension work would be to have a selection of plastic shapes and see what kind of pictures can be made by sliding them around or placing them on top of each other. There are also lots of sticky materials available in craft stores which can be used in scrapbooks or on paper to make pictures. When playing with them don’t forget to keep calling the shapes by their correct names.
