WHAT DOES LIFE BY SHAPE DO?

Life By Shape produces educational posters for schools and homes designed to provide motivation, inspire critical thinking and build self-esteem. Our mission is to get children talking and thinking outside of the box, while engaging with each other and developing mastery skills.

Our posters are displayed in schools & homes with a purpose to create meaningful and engaging discussions among all types of learners. 

WHAT MAKES OUR EDUCATIONAL CHILDREN’S POSTERS FOR SCHOOLS STAND OUT?

Just like all of us, shapes can take on many forms. Our educational children’s posters use images of shapes to visually reflect positive and motivational messages surrounding self-esteem in children.

 HOW DID LIFE BY SHAPE BEGIN?

“As a Primary School Teacher, the best part of my job is seeing the confidence of children grow. It’s a pleasure to see children become increasingly independent, self-assured and eager to voice their own opinions.

On the other hand, I also see some children struggle due to fixed mind-sets or low self-esteem, whether it’s tackling new concepts, engaging with others or simply thinking they’re not good enough at something.

My mission is to develop and embed a growth mind-set into all children. One that enables them to keep trying if a challenge gets tough, be proud of who they are and express themselves confidently.

We all have different ways of learning. I wanted to find a way for all types of learners to interact and discuss issues surrounding self-esteem. 

As a trial, I created a set of images using shapes to share with my children with the hope of initiating some discussions. To my surprise, the images stimulated some of the best discussions that I had ever had with my class, with every child having something of value to say. 

Due to the success of the trial, I decided to take my idea further, and created Life By Shape.

I sincerely thank you for taking the time to read about Life By Shape. If you haven’t already visited the Life By Shape shop, visit it here.
