Teaching children to recognize shapes is important; teaching them to recognize them in everyday objects is important and fun.
Here is a set of 4 books illustrating shapes in everyday objects - 1 each for circles, squares, triangles, and rectangles with shapes for students to glue or velcro in to complete the "I see..." carrier phrase.
There are additional activities for coloring shapes and matching shapes. The latter can be made into a file folder activity.
Take a look at my other interactive books about community helpers
, farm animals
, and transportation
for early education, special education, or speech therapy.
