Tired of labeling and sorting shapes with your kindergarten students? Discover powerful ways to engage students in transformational geometry using pentominoes. We demonstrate how all children—irrespective of their entry points—are capable of developing spatial reasoning skills and geometric concepts, typically ignored in early-years classrooms.
