The short, one minute video below explains how your child is learning these skills and some fun ways you can encourage their development at home. Select the 'Lesson Content and Learning Targets' tab at the bottom of the page for a full breakdown of what they'll be covering in each lesson.
Have fun! We hope you enjoy these activities with your child.
Ideas for home
- Talk about everyday situations that involve comparison. E.g. when your child notices that a sibling has more crackers than they do, ask how many more crackers the sibling has. Listen for how your child solves the problem — by either counting on or counting back.
- Tell subtraction stories. E.g. “Earlier, there were nine cars in the parking lot. Now there are only six. How many cars have left? How do you know?” One way your child might solve this is to think of six and how many more make nine.
- Compare the height of the people in your family. Talk about measuring height using feet and inches and describing height in two ways. E.g. 62 inches is the same as five feet, two inches.
- Ask your child to estimate the length of everyday items. E.g. ask, “About how many inches long is the fork?” “About how many feet across is your bed?” Remember to follow up with, “How do you know?”
- Ask your child what unit would be best for measuring different items in your home or neighborhood. E.g. inches might be best to measure the length of a crayon, feet might be best to measure the length of a table, and yards might be best for measuring the distance from home to the bus stop. Ask your child to explain their thinking.
