Learning Measurement (7-6-14)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:   Measuring is fun to learn. 

PRACTICE:   Today, think of a fun measurement game or activity. You can measure how tall stuffed animals are, the size of the TV, draw around people’s feet or shoes and measure the outline, etc.

Talk about what you learn. Put the emphasis on what matters about these sizes.

Will they change? Why or why not? When is bigger better, and when is smaller better? Why?

Today’s Decide and Practice daily parenting tip was inspired by our featured picture book, MY VERY BIG LITTLE WORLD.  Read the book to a child in your life each day as a reminder of what you are deciding and practicing that day.

Come back each day for another good parenting decision and how to practice it. (Each day’s activity will also be posted on the Daily Parenting Tips page for easy access.)
