HELPING YOUR CHILD DO MATHEMATICS:

A Guide For Parents

Geometry and Spatial Sense                      

Familiar Shapes in Our World K - 3


• When talking with your child, identify things by their shape and size: “Please pass me the rectangular placemat, the largest box out of the cupboard, the squareshaped cracker and the circular plate.”
• Ask your child to look for two-dimensional shapes, such as circles, squares, triangles and rectangles, on objects at home or outside. For example, help your child find various shaped street signs and name the shapes that are on them.
• 3-D Hunt. Help your child look for three-dimensional objects: cubes, cones, spheres (such as a ball), prisms (such as a box), pyramids and cylinders. Talk about how a pop can or a paper towel roll is like a cylinder.
• Play I Spy with your child by asking him or her to guess an object you identify by its shape: “I spy something that is round,” “I spy something that has a cylinder shape.” Make this game more challenging by stating two shapes: “I spy something
that is round and has a square on it.”

The greater the support that families provide for their children’s learning and educational progress, the more likely that their children will do well in school and continue on with their education.
