Mathematics for Young Minds: Pre-K to 1st Grade Space and Shape Activities

Mathematics for Young Minds Space and Shape is an instruction activity book filled with 60 developmentally sequenced Pre-K to 1st grade space and shape activities.

It also includes blackline masters and informal assessment guidelines.

Book Overview

This book focuses the mathematical background and research base of space and shape.

The goal is to help young learners develop a foundation for understanding geometry. To accomplish this goal, the following four aspects of space and shape must be understood:

  • Three-Dimensional Space
  • Two-Dimensional Space
  • Location and Direction
  • Movement in Space

However, to understand these aspects, young learners also need the following seven spatial perception skills:

  • Eye-Motor Coordination
  • Figure-Ground Perception
  • Perceptual Constancy
  • Position-in-Space Perception
  • Perception of Spatial Relationships
  • Visual Discrimination
  • Visual Memory

Activities Overview

The best way to develop the language, skills and understanding that young learners need to conceptualize space and shape is to involve them in a variety of activities. A few of the Pre-K to 1st grade space and shape activities found in this book include:

  • From Here to There
  • Left and Right Game
  • Building Robots
  • Sandy Prints

These activities encourage children to:

  • Communicate reasoning
  • Engage in discussion
  • Reflect on experiences
  • Connect new ideas with existing mathematical knowledge

Activities can be further divided into:

  • Individual Activities
  • Small-Group Activities
  • Whole-Class Activities
  • Reproducible blackline activities

Skills, Knowledge and Abilities Promoted in Students
