How shapes helped me to learn

I can tell you most emphatically that having had exposure to feeling shapes as a child sure helped me to learn what things looked like. In addition, when I received my first cornea transplant the learning of shapes helped me greatly to quickly adjust to a new world of more vision.

My parents and granny were extremely instrumental in helping me. As early as I could remember, they were constantly teaching me the shape of things, from circles to squares and triangles to ovals. I remember using clay and plasticine to mold things and I also remember using blocks to construct such things as houses, vehicles, and so much more.

My parents and granny taught me how to construct various objects and they even continued their tutoring on the beach: using sand to help me learn what a castle felt like, tracing letters in the sand, and so much more.

I learned the shapes of cars, trucks, buses and boats by feeling the toys of my brothers. I formed shapes of various objects with clay and plasticine, and I used my imagination to help me create my very own shapes. I even learned what a Christmas tree looked like by feeling the shape of one that my cousin Brian had done for me.

So many wonderful memories for me and they will always be with me.

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"If you either are or have been a victim of crime, violence, abuse, or bullying, and if you are simply tired of being bombarded with audios and scenes of the above, then I am asking for your support. I have written and recorded audio mysteries that are completely void of vivid descriptions of sex, crime, and violence because I firmly believe that it is time for us to use the spoken word to help influence our kids to start listening to content that is clean and healthy.
