You have come across LilyVale Learning’s “Shape Playdough Mats” with corresponding “Real World Shapes”! These mats are perfect for children ages 3-5. Simply roll out the playdough into a rope (or a “snake) and have your child see if they can form the playdough rope around each of the 10 different basic shapes included and in no time they will be recognizing the shapes all around them all while strengthening their fine motor skills and having fun!
There are 4 separate activities incorporated into each mat:
-Shape Formation- There are four opportunities to practice the shape on every mat.
-Shape Creation- Have them create their own “real world” representation of the main shape.
-Shape Word Practice- Using a washable marker, they can practice writing the name of the shape 3 separate times. (Practice makes Progress!)
-Beginning Geometry- Learn, count, and write the number of “sides” and “corners’ of each shape.
