Activity On Circular Shape
The tires of an old yellow car.
The round lid of a candy jar.
The clock hanging on the wall.
A cat playing with the red ball.
The sweet chocolate donut I ate,
And a whole apple pie on my plate.
The shiny buttons on my dress.
What’s the shape? Take a guess.
They are all round like a C-I-R-C-L-E.
Throughout the school year we focus on different shapes with our little ones. At the beginning of the year as the kids are very young, so we like to keep things simple. That’s why we start off with circle as our first shape.
Circles are pretty easy for the kids to identify as they do not have to count any sides to know which shape it is.
The CIRCLE shape was introduced to Nursery kids with the introductory circle song. A circle is a round shaped figure that has no corners or edges. A few things around us that are circular in shape are- a car tire, a wall clock, a lollipop, chapati, bangles and coins are shown to the kids.
And of course the best way for them to remember the shape is by working with them hands on to begin to recognize circles in their daily lives.
