Shapes Storytime – revised
Learning shapes as a toddler is a key math concept that is essential for later subjects. Offer a shapes-themed storytime to emphasize the importance of the subject. Parents may also need exposure to toys that help a toddler learn shapes. For a craft project, make one of these simple ideas: DLTK’s Learning Our Shapes Activities (dltk-teach.com).
Baker, Alan. Brown Rabbit’s Shapes. Rabbits learn about various shapes.
Barnett, Mac. Circle. Triangle, Circle, and Square are friends and must learn to play together.
Khan, Hena. Crescent Moons and Pointed Minarets. Things from the Muslim world are used to demonstrate various shapes.
Miranda, Anne. Tangled. Sixteen shapes become tangled on the jungle gym.
Murray, Diana. City Shapes. A young Black girl points out items of various shapes in her neighborhood.
Nicholls, Sally. The Button Book. Various buttons that need to be pushed are shown in different shapes. Encourages interaction similar to Tullet’s Press Here.
