Shape Bias Language Cards : This set has 177 double-sided cards with words, pictures, and descriptive sentences. These cards are numbered to match the Teaching Cards and are designed to help the child learn the shape bias. The shape bias is an important concept for babies and toddlers because the rate of word learning improves once the child learns that the shapes of objects (such as chairs, books, and cups, etc.) generally provide more information about the objects’ functions than their colors, textures, sizes, or materials. The front of the cards shows the same words with different fonts and colors. This side of the cards is designed to help the child learn the words’ shape are more important than their colors, specific fonts, or background colors. The back of each card has a photo and a descriptive sentence demonstrating the word’s meaning. Includes language development tips and word cover to help isolate individual words.
