Time & Measurement
Identify things based on their features
Little ones begin to learn (and get very frustrated when they don't understand!) that our days are broken down into units of time and many many words that refer to time:
''after the movie its time for lunch''
''are we there yet?''
''at 11am we'll go the library''
''tomorrow after school we have to go to the dentist''
''It's Christmas time soon'
It is important to understand time in order to understand our place in the world, including what we are expected to do and when.
Understanding time & measurement is also essential in communicating with others effectively.
Units and concepts of measurement include:
✅ measurement - time
