GROWING and MEASURING

 


Talking about growing and how much we have grown-.

Do they think they have grown from the start of the year?

 How will we be able to tell? you will measure the children and  see if they have got taller. ( I have the previous measurements) Get the children to see if they can find someone shorter than them, then taller than them and get them to use comparative language.

I would use cubes if you have them or something similar to measure and then they can write down....

 

I am ........ cubes long. 

 

When we did this at the start of the year I would get the children to lay down flat on the ground and place the cubes by one side from feet to their head. Can the children have a go at measuring you next and see how many more cubes you are than them.
