How do I teach my child long and short?

Do you ever wonder how do you teach long and short objects to young children? Well, here’s my take on the subject.

I believe that children pick up lots of the early math concepts and vocabulary naturally through play, reading with you, and interacting with everyday objects.

Simply use your daily activities to encourage exploration and thinking skills about things around you.

For instance, compare the length of slides at the playground, the length of spaghetti on a plate when eating dinner, long or short sticks your preschoolers find on a walk or a hike with you, and so forth.

For more structured play, ask your children to use blocks and make long or short roads for cars, paint flowers with long and short stems, or make and compare two sets of trains.

Make sure to also point out the opposites – long and short, in stories and picture books you read with your child.

And finally, grab these no-prep long and short worksheets for preschoolers and let them practice their fine motor skills too.
