There’s so much you can do about learning about sizes and measurements in a play-based way. It is important to use lots of different terms to increase your child’s
mathematical vocabulary as well as their understanding.
It is really important that young children have quality play experiences where they can sort, compare, and match things. This all takes place before they do more formal maths and it will help to form a solid foundation.
Learning about shapes is a key skill. Showing awareness of shapes in the environment is a large part of that. Shapes are everywhere and as soon as they are tuned into them, children will love pointing them out wherever they go.
Why not try using fruits and vegetables to make your own repeated pattern.
For example apple, pear, banana, apple, pear, banana.
