A favorite outside game that Dylan loved when he was a toddler to learn about shapes was for me to draw shapes and I would ask him which shape was which. As I asked, he would jump into the shape . Really a fun way for him to learn his shapes. On one of our recent sunny days, I brought Tyler outside and drew a circle, square, heart, triangle and star with chalk. He really enjoyed this learning game and didn’t tire of me asking ‘where is the circle?’ or ‘where is the heart?’ He would jump knowingly in to each shape and look at me for approval with a big smile.
