Example for applying the geometrical shape, change the shape according to the current daily acties: Take the circle shape (a ring from pyramid or a wooden circle will be just fine) and show it to the baby.

Say: this movement is called translation. Translation. We slide the circle from up to down. Do it all over the back. Now place the circle up on the left side from the spinal cord. Flip it over the spinal cord to the right. Say: This movement is called reflection. Reflection. I flip the circle from left to right, from left to right. Do it starting from upper part of the back going gently down to the lower part. Place the circle on the top of the back in the center (on the spinal cord). Tilt it around its axis. Say: I am turning the circle. This movement is called rotation. Rotation. Repeat the action until you reach the bottom of the spinal cord.

Say: I will slide the circle over your hands. Take the circle and slide it first on the right hand from the shoulder to the hand. Say: I translate the circle from your shoulder, to your arm through your elbow to your hand right to your fingers. Repeat with the left hand. Say: I will roll the circle over your legs. Take the circle and roll it down on its edge first on the right leg from the thigh to the foot.
