Mathematics for Young Minds Space and Shape highlights young children as active investigators of the world around them. Learning about space and shape helps children make sense of their world and lays the foundation for an understanding of geometry. Children develop this knowledge through experiences with four aspects: movement in space, location and direction, three-dimensional shapes, and two-dimensional shapes.
This book supports the teaching of space and shape in early childhood learning environments and addresses the four aspects of space and shape while strengthening children’s ability to represent, reason, communicate, connect mathematical ideas, and solve problems.
Space and Shape includes:
Individual, small-group, and whole-class activities
