Geometry and spatial sense is a preschool math curriculum concept that involves
- Learning about two and three-dimensional shapes
- Understanding space words like near, under, by, on top of, etc.,
- Using transforming materials like puzzles, blocks and clay
- Visualizing and drawing shapes
Giving children direct experience with these types of materials and language in the early years helps them to understand more complex geometry concepts in the future. Don’t forget that learning about these concepts in play-based child-centered ways has more last effect than does drill and practice.
