The Preps Measure Up!
Our Preps are exploring measurement concepts in Mathematics and have been so engaged as they learn to measure objects using informal units. The Preps enjoyed recording their observations and findings and shared these with each other. The rich learning taking place during these lessons has been evident through the language and conversations between the students.
“Don’t leave gaps between the matchsticks or the measurement will be wrong.”
“I measured that same book too. Why do we have different numbers?”
“This is seven and a half pencils long. How do I write a half?”
Hands on learning in Mathematics allows our Preps to develop a deeper conceptual understanding of measurement, whilst developing their decision making, creative thinking, counting and spatial awareness skills.
