Teach Spatial Relationships Through Puzzles

Visualizing spatial relationships is important to understanding geometry. Give your child a head start by doing puzzles. Begin with the border pieces, so that the edges of the puzzle are constructed first. When your child struggles to make a certain piece fit into the puzzle, resist the urge to help. Let her experiment with trial and error, instead.
