Excellent Geometric Shape Set! 30 Oct 2014
By Ellybean - Published on Amazon.com
I like sets I can use in my homeschooling in more than one way. For instance, the Translucent Geometric Shapes from Learning Resources we've been using not just for math but for art as well! Since this set is so open ended, I've been able to utilize it to the max for educating for both my nearly 4 year old son and six year old daughter. Which means the needs of a first grader and k4 student can be completely met with the right activities. There are many that can be exercised from sorting & classifying, identifying the shape, building, fractions, geometry, and more!

This set includes 408 shapes pieces and a helpful activity guide. All the pieces are translucent and would work really well with a glo-Pane light panel. Of the 408 pieces there are 14 different shapes in 7 colors and several of the shapes come in different sizes and indifferent angles. Shapes include squares, rectangles, triangles, hexagon, trapezoid, rhombus, circle, half circle, and quarter circle. The different angles of certain pieces allow for introduction an introduction to right, obtuse, and acute angles! The shapes used as a whole can really open the door to teach about all sorts of math concepts.

The shapes seem to made out of some sort of plastic. The plastic appears durable and if needing to be cleaned, it appears that no damage would come of it. The set is easily stored in the container it comes in! Major plus to not have to purchase a container separately!

I've been using this set with my six year old daughter right now to teach basic fractions and the names of certain shapes. It's been a lot of fun for the kids to take different shapes and make another. I bring this set out for play quite a bit for quiet time. My kids could spend all day creating all sorts of art and patterns! I like any way to make schooling more hands on for my kids and this set totally fits the bill. I highly recommend it!
Great way to cut back on electronics time and introduce a fun way to play & learn! 6 Nov 2014
By Krista R. Bainbridge - Published on Amazon.com
I received this set in exchange for my honest opinion. My opinions remain just that - honest and MINE!

Our girls use iPads for their lessons at school and both have tablets at home – that being said, we have a strict enforcement of “e-free” time each day, meaning for a period of time they need to find something to do that is non-electronic. Tonight the girls spent their hour of e-free time playing with the Translucent Geometric Shapes set from Learning Resources and they loved it so much that they ended up playing with them for over 2.5 hours!
This set comes with 408 pieces that includes 14 different shapes in seven colors! My favorite part is that it comes with a container – wait for it, WITH A LID! With 408 pieces, things can get a bit crazy, but if I encourage the girls to stay at the table with them (which they usually do), I can also get them to put them back into this container and not worry about chasing around the pieces later, or tracking down some random bag that I made for them.
But back to the Translucent Geometric Shapes set – this set is great for kids from preschool age and up to work on 2-D shape skills, colors and creating/recreating shapes and outlines. It is compliant with the Common Core Standard and supports what your children are likely doing at school already. Since they are translucent, you can use them with a lightboard and kids will enjoy the bright colors. For me, it reminded me of the overhead projectors from when I was a kid and how my teachers showed us how shapes put together made other shapes using a similar set!
Great for teaching geometry 21 Nov 2014
By w2005blca - Published on Amazon.com
We received the Translucent Geometric Shapes from Learning Resources. These are great for children 4 years of age and up. I think these would be a great tool to use to teach preschool children about basic shapes. They come in a variety of fun colors. They are a fun tool to help teach about basic geometry. This comes with 408 pieces. The set includes polygons, and circles. This is also a neat way to help your child understand fractions. The set is also aligned with Common Core and is meets the standards for geometry.

Great Learning Tool! 13 Mar 2014
By R. Cruz - Published on Amazon.com
One thing that I really like about the set is that there are several different sizes and shapes. For instance, there are five different types of triangles included. This means that we can not only show what a triangle is, but we can go more in depth and talk about right triangles, equilateral triangles, etc.

Other shapes included are: Squares, circles, hexagons, rectangles, rhombuses, trapezoids, half circles, and quarter circles. There is really so much that you can do with this set! It's great for sorting and classifying by color and/or shape. My daughter likes to make pictures with the shapes and then use some of the smaller shapes to create larger shapes. It has even been helpful with my 9 year old son, in talking about fractions. This is definitely a set that will get a lot of use, for a long time to come.
