Master basic shapes through this cute free preschool instructional material- Shapes Flashcards Free Printable!
According to studies, each person has a dominant or preferred learning style/s. And as teachers/parents, we should be aware of our children’s learning styles so we can design appropriate activities for them.
To be safe, I recommend having varied activities in the classroom. This way, everyone gets to be engaged in their preferred style of learning.
In addition, a mix of activities makes for a fun learning environment. And as I’ve said a million times, children learn best when they are having fun.
So if you take a peek in my classroom, you’d observe a mix of games, storytelling, songs and hands-on activities. With a couple of group work and solo time in between.
Sounds ideal? Not really. My class is not perfect but it’s definitely fun.
I just want to make sure that I cover all my students’ learning style.
The Seven Learning Styles
- Visual (Spatial)- prefers using pictures and images
- Aural (Auditory- Musical)- prefers sound and music
- Verbal (Linguistics)- prefers using words, both in speech and written
- Physical (Kinesthetic)- prefers using body, hands and sense of touch
- Logical (Mathematical)- prefers using logic, reasoning and system
- Social (Interpersonal)- prefers to learn in groups or with other people
- Solitary (Intrapersonal)- prefers to work alone and do self-study
For today’s free instructional material, it focuses more on visual learners. However, kinaesthetic learners may also be covered if you use the flashcards with other hands-on activities such as molding play dough, cutting shapes and the like.
We’ve tried using these flashcards as patterns for play dough. It was a huge success!
Social and solitary learners may also benefit from these shapes flashcards by letting them work in groups or individually.
Clearly, your imagination as a teacher will be your ally in designing activities using this free preschool printable so you can accommodate all learning styles in your class.
You can do it!
Oh! And these basic shapes flashcards are also great classroom decors. Just post them in high traffic corners and at children’s eye-level for maximum exposure.
Provide a mix of fun activities in your classroom so you cover everyone’s learning style.
