Tips for Families

To help build your child's vocabulary, ask your child questions about food. What color is it? How does that taste? How does that smell? What do you like the best? You can also have your child practice counting raisins and nuts and comparing sizes and quantities.

Tips for Teachers

Measure items by comparing them to other things. Ask the children, "Can you find things the same size as your hand? How about your foot? Do you see something your same height?"
