This shape-based what’s in my tray? activity is good for children learning to recognise basic shapes and to understand what comes next in a pattern or sequence.
What to do:
- Draw a grid into the base of a tray.
- Cut out a selection of shapes- we have used squares, circles and triangles.
- Think of a pattern and place the shapes into the squares.
- Each row on the grid is a new pattern/sequence.
- Give your child the spare shapes and ask them to complete all the sequences.
