Math Activity (Geometry): What Do You See?

Print the shape sheet and cut it in half. Download here. Have your child pick which page they will turn into a picture today. Say the names of the two shapes on the page, and have your child say them aloud, too. While looking at the shapes, think out loud and ask your child, “What could these be?” Turn the paper in various ways and model brainstorming what the shapes could be. For example, a triangle and a circle could be an ice cream cone or a bird flying through the air. Tell your child it’s their turn to say out loud some ideas for what the shapes could be. Have fun with the ideas! Ask your child to say what they are going to draw and then draw it! After drawing, your child might like to add a few letters or words to label their picture.
