I wanted to share a fun activity that both my children have been working on this week, although my one year old is only enjoying the photos. You can use these summer visuals to teach the concept of size discrimination, a fundamental math skill.
Size discrimination is the foundation for learning about measurement and how to measure.
To explain further, you can't understand measurement without understanding the concept of size. This is first taught using direct comparison, where identical objects are compared next to each other.
Eventually you can continue on with this work using indirect comparison, comparing two objects that are different.
This activity also enriches the vocabulary. Children will not only understand the words small, medium, and large but also smaller, smallest, as well as larger, and largest.
