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 are the building blocks for several bigger concepts that children will use throughout their schooling and lives.
Same or Different - This is the start of basic observation skills.
Problem Solving and Spatial Relations - Shapes are a great way to introduce problem-solving skills.
Math Skills - Geometry is in part the study of shapes. Having a basic understanding of them from a young age will make math class a lot easier for kids.
Letter Recognition - This is one of the biggest reasons to work on shapes early. Shapes help with letter recognition.
