**When children leave kindergarten, they should have a strong foundation**

** in basic kindergarten skills and geometry. Geometry sounds like a fancy term **

**for such a young age, but one of the basic geometry skills is knowing and **

**understanding different shapes. Recognizing shapes is the first step and students **

**will need to know how to do this. In addition to being able to point them out on a **

**worksheet or in a book, students should understand that shapes are all around us. **

**Children should be able to identify circles, triangles, squares, and rectangles.. **

**You can help your children by giving them opportunities to practice by doing shapes **

**games meant for kindergarten students. You can also help your children build their **

**knowledge of shapes by helping them to notice shapes in the world around them. **

**Point out that the cereal box is a rectangle and ask if they see any other shapes**

** in the kitchen. Take a good look at road signs when you’re in the car and**

** ask your children to tell you what shapes they see.**

**Introducing shapes around us.. Yayy!!!**
