か:かたち (Shapes)

25 Jan

まる、さんかく、しかく (circle, triangle, square) are the shapes that I have taught my toddler so far. For older children, click here for a more complete list of all the shapes and their names.


I think this is a cute art activity for preschoolers to help them learn the names of shapes. First, cut out various shapes from colored paper. Then get creative and make animals, buildings, etc! I found the idea at マトリョーシカな日々 blog.

Kids-points.com has dot-to-dot worksheets where your toddler/preschooler can practice tracing shapes, here.

Isn’t there a song called ”まる、さんかく、しかく”? I seem to remember learning it when I was little but I can’t find it online. Do you know?

Just found another cute video:
