    Hi, I was using this with my year 2 class today and we noticed that the “rhombus” (purple) is actually a square rotated. It would be great if you could edit this resource to include a rhombus. Also, if you could add a parallelogram, that would be great!

      Hi Megan, thank you for your feedback. Typically a rhombus has a diamond quality in its shape. It has four equal length sides, but only opposite angles need to be the same as each other. If you need assistance with anything else, please feel free to contact us.
