These shape-based crafts will help children remember the names of shapes by associating them with common objects. And, while they're learning their shapes, youngsters will have a lot of fun producing creative art projects. In this book designed to supplement the teaching of basic shapes, Kathy Ross draws on her thirty years experience as a preschool teacher and curriculum developer. She has designed twenty easy-to-make crafts, each one based on one of four common shapes. To learn circles, a child will enjoy making a Rubber Band Circle Picture. A Triangle Page Marker will be a useful reminder of that three-sided shaped. A Rectangle Pussycat Puppet and a Wrapped Square pin are entertaining and useful items that will further reinforce shape recognition.
