Shapes are everywhere, especially on road signs we see every day, from circular traffic light signs to pentagonal school signs. Children of 3 years old should be able to understand basic shapes and identify many shapes in the objects they see. This worksheet starts teaching children the basic shapes (such as triangle, square/rectangle, pentagon, circle, etc.), and asks them to recognize basic shapes on various road signs. The road signs presented include from the simple triangular yield sign to the more complicated no-bicycle sign, which composes several shapes together. Ask your children to recognize as many shapes as possible. You may also ask them to search around your house to find objects matching a basic shape. Learning shapes helps them identify and organize visual information, which will help them learn skills in areas like reading, math, and science.
Basic shapes include triangle, rectangle/square, pentagon, hexagon, octagon, circle.
Road signs include yield sign, traffic light sign, stop sign, county road sign, school sign, no-walk sign, yield-ahead sign, no-bicycle sign, stop-ahead sign.
