One of those things was shapes. How hard can shapes be, right? Grace knew things like square, triangle, circle and diamond but those weren't the only shapes she was expected to learn.
Diamond was now referred to as rhombus. Oval was now referred to as ellipse. And, fun shapes like trapezoids and hexagons were added into the mix.
Thanks to pinterest, I came across a fantastic blog AMSTI Kindergarten Style, that shared this teaching shape method. Though they didn't have a tutorial, it's easy enough to figure out.
Have your little one paint Popsicle sticks. Each shape will be painted a unique color. Then, have your littel one write out the name of the shape and the total number of sides on each stick.
Depending on ability level of your child, you might want to cut the shape out of paper to add them in piecing the sides together to complete the shape.
Pull them out, let your little one have some fun building their shapes.
Once they've mastered building the shapes you've made, have them try and create new shapes.
