Dear Parent, This is a different kind of shapes book. It is based on a Montessori way of teaching that has been successful for over a century: focusing on the concrete before the abstract. First, your child concretely traces the outlines of the shapes in order to understand the similarities and differences between each one. Next, your child recognizes the shape illustrated as part of a real-world object. Finally, your child learns the shape name. Each one is presented: * by category: triangles, rounds, parallelograms, and polygons * with an outline to trace * with a reference illustration to provide context Through listening, answering, and tracing on every page, your child will acquire invaluable spatial and mathematical skills– the Montessori way. Enjoy! Bobby and June George Founders, Baan Dek Montessori School Sioux Falls, South Dakota
