Can you beat yesterday's number? Are all your numbers the correct way round?

 

Main Teaching:

Lie down with arm and legs slightly apart, draw around you (could be using chalk outside, weather permitting, or on a large piece of paper or if you do not have paper use building blocks to place around your child to leave their outline on the floor).

Use the outline of your body to do some measuring.

 

What could we use to measure from the shoulder to the end of the fingers?

Could you use a shoe, hands, ruler, cubes, etc. Measure with 2 different objects and label the measurement including the unit e.g. 13 shoes or 17 hands.

 

Measure another part of the body and label it.

 

Compare the different body parts.

Which is bigger; your leg or your arm?

Which is smaller; your head or your hand?

How many more shoes is your leg to your arm? e.g 14-12 = 2 more shoes.
