Shapes and colors are the most noticeable attributes of the world. We use shapes and colors to describe and categorize the world. Kids start to differentiate colors when they are around 18 months old; at around the same time, they also begin to notice differences between shapes, size, and texture. After age 2, kids start to match objects with the same shape and begin to learn the names of shapes. By the age of 3, kids could fully understand the meanings of colors and name different colors. Learning shapes and colors lays the foundation for later academic success and daily practical uses, such as understanding math, building descriptive vocabulary, sorting and classifying objects, and so on.
This worksheet provides exercises for learning shapes and colors. It contains instances of three kinds of shapes (circles, triangles, and squares), but with different sizes. The exercise asks the kids to color each kind of shape with a color: circles in red, triangles in green, and squares in blue. This worksheet could be useful for parents to assist their kids in learning shapes and colors.
