47 Shape sort
Share cutting out and handling lots of two dimensional shapes with your child and there will be lots of opportunity to talk about corners, sides, size… the foundations of the mathematical language of shape. Hide part of a shape and create a challenging puzzle, where there will be lots of wrong guesses. Experiencing these ‘safe mistakes’ in the context of a game will be brilliant- mistakes support your child’s understanding to grow much stronger. By playing the next game with a special shape dice, the concepts are practised back to front!
Watch out for tickles in the final game!
