Summary: This study investigates the semiotic resources utilized by kindergarten teachers and their mediating role in young children’s geometrical reasoning in different teaching-learning processes based on the use of a picture book as a didactical tool. Data were collected and analysed from two kindergarten classes. The teachers were found to use multiple semiotic resources in different ways. The mediating role of the teachers’ use of semiotic resources on children’s making sense of geometric shapes was manifested in various ways, but was stronger in one of the two classes.
