Skills to Practice

Children can count the number of sides, trace the outline of the shapes using their fingers, and even compare the different shapes.
Each card has basic shapes in black and white. This allows your child to focus on the outline of the shape and not just the color.
15 different shapes in total for your child to identify while they play this printable math game. As they play the common name of the shapes along with how the shape looks is reinforced!
