Inspired by the pedagogy of Antoine de la Garanderie, a game to learn the name of geometric shapes by touching them.

Strong points

  • Intensive use of kinesthetic evocation, development of sense of touch, vocabulary
  • Touch is often forgotten in learning. Yet some educators and teachers know that this meaning can promote learning, and use it for writing and geometry for example.
  • This is a fun game that allows you to feel the shapes before you see them, an ability that will find an interesting extension in solving some geometric problems.


  • Triangles, circles and squares in wood or cut out of cardboard
  • 1 large opaque bag, for example of paper
  • Leaf
  • 1 pencil

The game

  • Tell your child that you will play to recognize shapes without looking at them.
  • Strip his eyes (if he agrees) and gently, take his finger and have him go around a shape, repeating and making him repeat the name of the form.
  • Then say: "Now go around the shape with your finger, all alone, and repeat his name ... Yes, bravo!"
  • Do the same thing with other shapes. "Revise" by taking again the forms already evoked. Take time, children are not used to talking about it this way.

    It's time to get down to your mind. It's time to come to your senses.

    I'm sorry, but in my opinion, you are wrong. I'm sure. I am able to prove it. Write to me in PM, discuss it.

    Granted, very useful message

    I hope because of the quality I will catch the meaning!
