# Shapes Chart

Updated: Mar 24, 2021

Kids need to learn shapes early on, but remembering them can be tricky. They mix up circles, squares, and other forms easily. We found getting them to recognize and name shapes takes practice. A chart with different shapes could help make this learning smoother.

We craft a printable shapes chart to help kids learn and identify different shapes easily. It's put together in a way that makes it accessible for young learners, with clear pictures and names of each shape. Handy for classrooms or homeschooling, it helps in introducing basic geometry concepts. Good for quick reference and engaging kids in learning through visual aids.

## What is Meant by Geometry?

Geometry is a fundamental subject in mathematics that is taught in schools. It explores the properties and relationships of points, lines, and shapes. Starting from a single point, lines are formed, and then these lines combine to create various shapes. By studying geometry, you can understand the structure and characteristics of different geometric entities and how they relate to one another.

## Why is Learning Geometry Important for Students?

There are many things in life that use geometric shapes. Therefore, students need to understand the various geometric shapes to recognize various objects around them.

Not only that but learning geometric shapes will also make it easier for children to understand science and math. The reason is, geometry is the basic science in mathematics and is related to various other branches of science.

In addition, children can also learn to read and write by recognizing the shapes of numbers and letters. For this reason, shape recognition is important because it is useful for improving reading and writing skills.

Not only use printable shapes worksheets, but you can also use fun games to help children understand these geometric shapes. Some of these shape activities are as follows.

• Use lego to form a geometric shape. With legos, children can form various 2D and 3D shapes. It's also a fun way to learn geometric shapes because legos are kids' favorite toys.

• You can also introduce children to different geometric shapes using playdough and toothpicks. Make some geometric shapes using colorful playdough. Toothpicks are used to help children observe every corner of the shapes easily. Then, ask the children to make another 2D or 3D shape with those two items.

• Next, you can use geoboards. It is a classical geometry tool that is used to introduce shapes, describe their characteristics, and measure geometric shapes.

• Another way is to use tangrams. It is a geometry tool that is currently widely used by children. This is because these tools are easier to use and can provide a deep understanding of the different patterns of geometric shapes.

• If you want to provide a more enjoyable geometry learning experience for children, you can use online games. Currently, there are digital games that present various geometric shapes. The educational game is the best tool to teach children about geometry in a fun way.
