Mouse Shapes


by Ellen Stohl Walsh
Early Literacy Aside

Identify the shapes you see and talk about them with your children. Circles and triangles are often parts of letters. Being able to see shapes will help children later recognize letters. Knowing letters and their names is one of the skills children need to learn to read.

The Early Literacy Kit by Betsy Diamant-Cohen and Saroj Nadkarni Ghoting
The Rolling Circle Song...
(Have You Ever Seen A Lassie?)
Have you ever seen a circle, a circle, a circle?
Have you ever seen a circle, which goes 'round and 'round?
It rolls this way and that way,
And this way and that way.
Have you ever seen a circle, which goes 'round and 'round?
The Letter Bus

The (D) on the bus says, “(d/,d/,d/,),



(d/,d/,d/,d/,d/,d/,),”

The (D) on the bus says, “(d/,d/,d/,)”

All the way to school!
Story

Color Zoo by Lois Ehlert
Where Is…?” Where Is Thumbkin?
Where is triangle? Where is triangle?
Here I am. Here I am.
How are you today, sir? Very well, I thank you.
Run away. Run away.
(Circle, rectangle, square, diamond)

Shapes Hokey Pokey

Put a red (name of shape) in,
Put a red (name of shape) in,
Put a red (name of shape) in,
And shake it all about.

Do the hokey pokey


And turn yourself around-
That's what it's all about.
Letter Knowledge at Home

Reading alphabet books and books about shapes can be great way to reinforce letter knowledge at home. Here are some fun books to share:


LMNO Peas by Keith Baker

Bad Kitty by Nick Bruel

Dr. Seuss’s ABC by Dr. Seuss

Eating the Alphabet by Lois Ehlert

The Racecar Alphabet by Brian Floca

Shape by Shape by Suse MacDonald

Alligators All Around by Maurice Sendak

A Circle Here, A Square There by David Diehl

Shapes, Shapes, Shapes by Tana Hoban

When a Line Bends, A Shape Begins by Rhonda Gowler Greene

Shapes that Roll by Karen Berman Nagel
Here is a fun activity you can do at home to help build letter knowledge:

Playdough Letters: Show the children how to shape letters out of playdough. Demonstrate rolling the dough into balls and pinching the dough to make a design or break it apart . Working with the dough is more important than making letters. It strengthens all three hand muscles that will be needed for writing. Older children will enjoy watching you shape the first letters of their names.
