The new edition ‘Learn by Doing… Shapes’ pack has been upgraded to include a total of 24 double-sided cards, all at the same great value as our number cards. The world is made up of so many shapes and, as a child, it’s fascinating to discover them. The pack includes 24 double-sided Montessori style 2D and 3D shapes and shapes to trace, all designed specifically to help learn and recognise the number of sides on each shape. A simple dot to dot connection to learn to draw the shape and help understand the number of points and sides to each shape. Learn through playing a number of fun games on the reference card to explore shapes in everyday objects in nature and indoors. The pack also contains a prewriting card, designed to highlight developmental ages to encourage your child to draw and write independently.
