Learning Tip: What colour, shape and size?

When showing colours, shapes or sizes, say to your child, "This is a circle and it is red."
Look at a colourful magazine picture and ask, "What else can we find that is red?"

Reinforce the names of colours, shapes and the concept of size using everyday opportunities, personal items and items in nature. Examples: What colour is that bird? Whose shoe is bigger: yours or mine? What shape is this ball?
