Learning Resources Geometric Shapes Building Set Review & Giveaway

 I was provided the below mentioned products in order to provide a review.
     Jayden has recently been learning about 3D shapes in Kindergarten.  They were identifying, naming, and comparing the different 2D and 3D shapes.  For the most part Jayden does really good with his shapes.  In fact math is his strong subject.  But there is always room for extra practice.  With summer almost  here I want to be sure Jayden does not lose what he has learned and maybe even get a little ahead for next year.  One of my favorite learning stores, Learning Resources, recently sent us the Geometric Shapes Building Set.


     The Geometric Shapes Building Set includes 90 stick in 3 different sizes, 32 curves, and 48 connectors with 2 different sets of holes for different angles.  That is 170 pieces total.  These pieces can be used to build many different 2-D and 3-D shapes.  There are endless opportunities for kids to build and explore with shapes.  They can even make circles and cylinders with the curves.  The set is colorful with different colors for each size.


     When we opened the box from Learning Resources Jayden wanted to start playing with these right away.  He laid them out and began to build.  He was excited to make shapes that he was learning about in school.  He needed a little help at first to figure them out, but then was able to make things on his own.  It would be nice if the set came with some cards for kids to copy.   Since Jayden is new learning about 3-D shapes he needed some hints and ideas for shapes to build.  I think this set helped him in his class after he went to school and worked more on geometric shapes.  I look forward to using these with him more over the summer to keep his learning going.


     Learning Resources has so many great products to help support children in learning new skills as well as keeping the knowledge they have and retain it.
