My DD1 loves nothing more than doing craft and covering herself with glue and glitter So I thought how can I turn this into teaching her something while still maintaining the fun. So I decided to go and buy the shinyest and preetiest paper I could find and teach her about shapes, or polygons to be exact.
DD1 already had a basic idea of shapes as I had made her a shapes book but it was something she didn't really look at anymore so I had to come up with a more creative way to reinforce what I have already taught her, but I had to remind myself what a polygon was and what was not a polygon as it has been while since I had done any geometry. So for those of you who want to know it is a shape with straight sides which all join up.
I wanted to write about this so you know that there are many ways to teach different subjects and you as the parent/teacher are not stuck to any 'one way' only the way that suits your child and their needs. Make it fun and your child will continue to love learning for a very long time.
