Measurement, There are many forms of measurement to learn (length, height, weight, size, quantities) and many tools for measuring. Embed measuring concepts into everyday activities. Measure while you cook or bake. Fill measuring cups with water or flour and measuring spoons with extract to introduce your kids to the concept of whole numbers and fractions. Ask questions such as ”Can you fill a half cup? Can you fill one teaspoon?”. Guess weight at the supermarket. The next time you visit the grocery store, pull two different items from the shelves and ask your child which one is heavier: ”Is it the can of soup or the box of crackers?” Children will learn how to understand the concepts of heaviness and lightness. Compare feet sizes. Place your foot next to your child’s foot and ask her which is longer or bigger. Have a ruler or tape measure on hand to compare the sizes and help her differentiate between long and short, large and small.
Children see the benefit of finishing what they have started. This might sound so simple, but again, many children grow up not knowing that it’s important to see things through to the end. In my experience, most children love finishing color by number worksheets since they would like to see what the picture would look like if colored entirely. According to research, it takes an average of two months to create a habit. Imagine using color by number pages in your classroom just to develop the skill of seeing things through to the end the whole year. That’s one life skill that your students will be able to benefit from long after they have left your classroom.
Count objects in everyday contexts. Count the number of buttons on your child’s shirt as you button them, the number of oranges he helps you put in the grocery bag at the supermarket, the number of forks needed to set the table, or the number of stairs you go up to the front door. Start with small numbers (no more than five) and add a few as your child is ready for a challenge. Put small objects in a row. Gather some coins and have your child count them. After she has counted them, rearrange them in a circle, in a row, or spread them out, and ask her again to count the objects. Don’t be surprised if she has to count them again. But if she automatically answers without counting, you’ll know he has mastered number in variance.
