This book is great. It makes learning about shapes fun! It starts out with 2-D shapes. It shows your child how they can make shapes into other things (like the pic on the front of the book above). Then they move to 3-D objects, showing the comparisons between the 2-D and 3-D objects. The book has great games too, to help your child learn the concepts. I also want to note that there is a CD that comes with the book. The CD has the activities from the book. It makes it super easy for you to print them off.
It is important to note that AIMS gives permission to make up to 200 copies of the activities if you are wanting to use them in a classroom setting. I’m sure that would be a major benefit for those teaching in a public or private school setting or for those that teach in homeschool co-ops. Honestly, I think it’s very generous of them to offer that!
I’ve told you in the past, I am not the most creative person, so this book is great for our family. It gives me activities to do with my kids that are fun!
