We all know that young children learn by repetition. What better way to learn shapes then getting a daily dose at calendar time. This set includes: triangles, squares, circles, rectangles, hexagons, trapezoids, rhombuses, and parallelograms. It also includes 3-D shapes: cubes, rectangular prisms, cones, cubes, spheres, and triangular pyramids. That is a total of 13 different calendar number sets. The color of the basic shapes match pattern block colors when possible. The calendar pieces come numbered 1-31, with 5 blank cards included for each shape.
• Combine to make patterns of shapes and/or colors
• Use for number sequencing activities
• Play shape or number matching games
• Give students a card and have them find a matching shape in the room
