Master counting and basic shapes through this preschool material- Counting Shapes Worksheets Free Printable!
Still in connection with previous posts, today’s free printable focuses on learning basic shapes. This worksheet set also builds on your child’s counting skills. So it’s a 2-in-1 instructional material which tackles two important skill sets: counting and shapes.
We follow a thematic curriculum in our school- meaning we design our activities based on a specific theme. This is to ensure that children see the relationship among learning areas rather than tackling topics in isolation.
Apart from being thematic, our curriculum is spiral in nature. Whatever children learn in the previous school year, they will still encounter the next year, but more challenging. This is practiced to achieve mastery.
For example, in the case of basic shapes, that in itself can be a lesson theme. So as a teacher, I should come up with activities and materials with shapes as the central topic.
