MS Word for Shapes
Ensure that your
Drawing toolbar is available on the bottom of the screen i.e.
go to View - Toolbar - make sure Drawing is checked. Using
the autoshapes on the base of the MS Word window you can draw
triangle of varying shapes and sizes, circles, squares, rectangles
and happy faces. These shapes could be used to make worksheets
on shapes. The line thickness of the shapes can be changed
also and you could apply a dotted line for the children to
trace the shape. Also you could make out counting worksheets
with rows of little 10 triangles, 10 squares etc. and ask
the child to colour in just 3/4/7 of them. This is very easy
to do once you get the first one the right size just copy
and continue pasting.
Tip: If you want to draw a perfect circle/square just hold
the shift key as you are drawing the shape otherwise you may
draw an oval/rectangle.
