Month 8 · Activity 2 · Shapes
- Read book “My Very First Book of Shapes" by Eric Carle
- Give child a shuffled deck of cards
- Ask child to find all of the cards with hearts on them and placing them in a pile
- Count the heart cards aloud together - there are 13 heart cards
Show child a card with a heart and keep as an example. Turn over each card in the deck individually for child to compare to the example heart card. When they see a matching heart card, remove from the deck. Try to find all 13 heart cards.
Let child separate the whole deck of cards by placing into piles of matching suits - clubs, diamonds, hearts, spades, jacks, queens, kings and aces.
