Here you can find the line up of the Week Two videos for your kids to enjoy. They will be appear as scheduled above on YouTube and on our Facebook Group where you can interact and share our vidoes with others.
Point out two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes and name them. You can find them in picture books and in real life.
Make a shape scavenger hunt by drawing several shapes on a piece of paper for your child, then looking for the shapes in your home or on a walk through the neighborhood.
List every shape your child can think of on a piece of paper. As you walk through the neighborhood or inside your home, look for the shapes together and find new shapes to add.
Make a shape field guide. As you take a walk together or explore your home, have your child use a pencil and paper, camera, tablet, or phone to record each shape found, the type of object, and where they found it.
All three-dimensional shapes start with two-dimensional shapes. Use spare paper or cardboard to cut out squares and triangles of equal size. How many squares do you need to build a cube? How many triangles to build a pyramid? How many triangles to build a second cube?
Architects and engineers use shapes to create structures. Use spare paper or cardboard to cut out small two-dimensional shapes including squares, rectangles, and triangles. Use the shapes tobuild a small model of a famous building, like the Empire State Building or Eiffel Tower. What three-dimensional shapes make up your building?
