Learning Basic Shapes Worksheets
How to Practice Learning Your Shapes  Making children learn about shapes in the early stages of their academic careers is essential. However, there are some shapes that teachers find hard to explain, especially to kindergarten students. Thus, before you begin teaching, you must carefully analyze your audience. In other words, if you are students are 2, then you should introduce shapes to them with adult help. On the other hand, if your child is age 3, you can make them draw shapes by using connecting dots method or giving them directions from above. Now, when your child is 4 to 5 years old, you can introduce different types of shapes to them.

What's Congruent?
Shapes that are congruent have the same size and shape. Their angles and sides are called corresponding angles and sides. Two and threedimensional shapes can be congruent. All congruent shapes are similar, but similar shapes may not be congruent. What about circles? A circle is a shape that has no sides and no angles. A shape with 3 sides and 3 angles is a triangle, a shape with 4 sides and 4 angles, and a quadrilateral. From 5 sides and 5 angles to 12 of each, they're all gons, from a penta to a dodeca.
