Message from the mayor

Welcome to ShapeShire!

We love helping children explore the world and broaden their horizons and we try to do so through storytelling and humor.

We’ve tried to include a range of activities that let children of all ages engage with geometry in a playful way while learning about their emotions. You can download and print all of our activity sheets from the website and we’ve also included solutions in case you need a hand finding your way.

Here are some suggestions to get you started:

  • ShapeShire-Starting-Point-Math-Various-Free-18-1

    Starting Point Worksheet #18 – Multiplication

  • Starting Point Worksheet #17 – Subtraction & Division

  • ShapeShire-Starting-Point-Math-Various-Free-16-1

    Starting Point Worksheet #16 – Addition & Subtraction

ShapeShire Shorts

We’ve also started a new series of short tidbits of information about geometry and shapes. These are great for starting a quick talk with your kids about these topics and are very simple and to the point. I hope you find them useful!

Here are a few of them to get you started, and you can find the full ShapeShire Shorts series here:
