Getting into Geometry - My TOS Review

I was really looking forward to receiving this product as I hadn't decided on a math curriculum for Avarie, my 1st grader. This was the perfect opportunity for us to dive into something new!

Math has not been a favorite subject for many of my children, but I think that's beginning to change. After the first lesson Avarie asked if we had to stop! She is having so much fun and the best part? She's learning! It's a homeschool parents dream! To make learning fun!

This softcover, 255 page book and CD set is a hands-on, fun way to learn about shapes. Your children will compose shapes like tangram trees, planes, animals, ect., helping them understand that the shape remains the same regardless of its orientation.
Each lesson lists a key question like in the first lesson on Shape Sense asks - How can we describe the four basic shapes? It also has a learning goal, background information, and a connecting learning section where you're given a list of questions to ask your child that ties the whole lesson together.
I also love that this book uses games to reinforce the concepts learned throughout the book.

AIMS Getting Into Geometry is for grades K - 1, but my 4 year old also loved doing many of the worksheets and had no problems.
You can purchase the book HERE and it sells for $24.95.

I received a free copy of AIMS Getting into Geometry in exchange for my thoughts and honest review.
