Early Learning with Digital Technologies

 Let's go hunting for shapes!



Hi everyone, here's an activity to help your  little ones with shape recognition!

Like most children, my son has mastered names of shapes and numbers through various resources,  but also  not to mention with various digital games and apps. So I went on to  help him recognise shapes in everday objects using the device he likes to use. 

Well, grab a Smart phone or  any other digital device and get your child hunt for various shapes. Once  you and your child start hunting for shapes together , your little one will recognise that shapes and patterns are all around us: on clocks, on his bicycle, his plate and so on . Thus, this activity will help children reinforce names of geometrical shapes and help visualise  existence of them in everyday objects.

You could also have the captured pictures printed out in order to make a "My Shapes Book" for your child to enjoy. You could also get your child trace over the shapes using the pictures.







In addition to many shape  recognition games available online, this activity was really fun and effective with my son. I believe there are many creative ways of using digital technologies to help children learn while having fun.
