Weekly Themes #33 Shapes for 6-8 year olds

Bibi here!  Aren’t shapes interesting?  They can be found in so many places.  Circles and squares, triangles, and even stars and hexagons.  My wings are like triangles, and my body is a long oval.  You can draw me if you wish!  Is your face more like an oval, or a circle, or even a square?  Look in a mirror and see.  Let’s look for shapes around us, in the world, and in a book!

Watch videos, download books to read together, and explore things to do with BookSpring.

Write: Can you think of some shapes that can roll? What about shapes you could slide? 

Create: Take turns to describe a shape for the other person to figure out. You can allow them to ask questions if necessary. For example, “I’m thinking of a shape that has 4 corners
