The Details

‘Learn by Doing… Shapes’ has a total of 24 double-sided cards, all at the same great value as our number cards. The world is made up of so many shapes and, as a child, it’s fascinating to discover them. The pack includes 24 double-sided Montessori style 2D and 3D shapes and shapes to trace, all designed specifically to help learn and recognise the number of sides on each shape. A simple dot to dot connection to learn to draw the shape and help understand the number of points and sides to each shape. Learn through playing a number of fun games on the reference card to explore shapes in everyday objects in nature and indoors. The pack also contains a prewriting card, designed to highlight developmental ages to encourage your child to draw and write independently.

The Learn by Doing… Shapes pack is perfect for preschool (aged 2+), Reception (early years, ages 4-5 years) and Year 1 (ages 5-6 years). The shapes included are: circle, triangle, square, rectangle, pentagon, hexagon, heptagon, octagon, sphere, cylinder, pyramid, cone, cube and cuboid. These are the shapes which are covered in the Maths School syllabus (KS1). We have also included the following shapes: oval, diamond, parallelogram, nonagon, decagon, semicircle, crescent, star, trapezium, heart, hemisphere and triangular prism. These shapes are useful for Year 2 and beyond when edges, vertices and faces come into play.

Mr Mole's Marvellous Ideas

Can you learn your times tables we recommend starting with 2s, 5s and 10s and then going back to fill in the gaps.

Larry's Learning Outcomes

Flashcards are a great way to use games to learn times tables. Learning by memory will equip children with the skills to quickly and mentally work out other equations.
