Teaching Kids Shape
I think most of us can agree that teaching shape is one of the less stressful math concepts.
There are so many resources available and every teacher I have ever worked with feels much more comfortable about teaching it! YAY for shape!
But before we fall into the trap of thinking that teaching shape is straightforward there are a couple of pitfalls you need to be aware of.
The biggest problem areas for kids are:
- Language of Shape
- Visualizing Shapes
- Being able to visualise shapes in other shapes
- Interpreting & visualising what cannot be seen
