For over 30 years, Mister Rogers has been a television friend to young children, helping them grow both "inside and out" as they learn along withi him every day. Numbers, Shapes, & Sizes brings to you his deep understanding of children and how they grow, and features practical, hands-on activities for your classroom.

Just look inside Numbers, Shapes, & Sizes -- there is so much to do! Children learn about numbers as they make a "Numbers I Like" book, count as they bounce a ball, and sort buttons. Children learn about shapes as they make "three-cornered hats," vegetable prints, and puzzles. And, to learn about sizes and measurement, children practice pouring rice, create a simple scale to measure weight, and make a sand clock.

As a teacher, you have many ways to help children learn basic math skills. Now, with these ideas from Mister Rogers and Numbers, Shapes, & Sizes, you will have a wonderful resource to support you in this important work.
