Sorting shapes

Today the children listened to the Mr Strong story.  We noticed that Mr Strong was a square shape with four side that are the same.

 
We then sorted every day objects into two groups, one group of objects that looked liked square objects and one group that did not.

 

   
    
  
Some children went on to sort even more objects into different groups.  The children began to talk about the properties of the shapes eg. How many sides each shape had.

   
    
 
Please spend some time with your child looking at objects in their home and decide which shape they look like eg a clock may look like a circle.
