Primary/K-6: All Kinds of Measure


Here we introduce your child to all areas of measure. We start building conceptual understanding by using familiar objects and your child’s own body, before moving on to introducing standard measures when appropriate. Your child will also be introduced to estimation through measurement.

As your child moves up the ladder, he/she will use measure to support his/her learning in number.
