dayswithgreyWho can resist more Ellen Stoll Walsh? We simply cannot, and my boys LOVED reading, "Mouse Shapes". 🐭🐱 Why Manipulate Shapes Now?
By Kindergarten, children will be asked to: •Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.
•Model shapes in the world by building shapes from components (e.g., sticks and clay balls) and drawing shapes. 💡Remember:
You do not have to master this in Preschool!
😉But this is a FUN way to begin the introduction to build confidence. 🙂

- dayswithgrey@elassen hey Emily! These particular ones I bought at lakeshore, but I found even better ones on Amazon. (Shipping with kids = 🙌🏼) link is in bio which will have a direct link in post.
- learningforlittles❤this!!! Such a great book! And perfect activity!
- dayswithgrey@learningforlittles thanks, Sarah! It is so open ended! Different every time.
- juliajevera@dayswithgrey this is amazing for toddlers!! Did you purchase the shapes somewhere or cut them out? I would prefer to buy them if it makes life any easier!! Any suggestions?
- dayswithgrey@juliajevera hey Julia! I hear you on that!! I found a better version on Amazon than what we used here. The link is in the bio, which has a direct link to the shapes. - if you want these exact ones, they are from @lakeshore
- dayswithgrey@juliajevera @lakeshorelearning (I got cut off, sorry!)
- themamaworkshopWe have shape blocks! So, this would be perfect!
- dayswithgrey@themamaworkshop yes! Shape blocks would work great. The ones we have didn't include circles. - not sure why?!
- munchkins_and_momsI think mouse count is my favorite- my boys love the snake so it became my favorite of the mouse books 🐍
