The Little Coach House wooden shape tracing board is perfect for children in early years education, helping with shape recognition and formation. This board has a circle, square, triangle and rectangle on the front, and an oval, pentagon, hexagon and heptagon on the reverse. Children develop the skills for helping with shape recognition as they fill the different shapes with items such as beads or rice. Later, children will build up muscle memory in their hands as they practice tracing each shape with their fingers or using the tracing stick, ideal preparation for putting pen to paper. The tracing stick helps develop the tripod grip for when they are ready to hold a pencil.
Made from sustainable FSC Beech wood, with a beautifully tactile natural oiled finish, this wooden shapes board provide endless learning opportunities and is a wonderful sensory educational resource.
