LEARNING GOALS:
Time:
I can read and write the time on analog and digital clocks.
I can understand the conversions between different amounts of time: seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years.
Length:
I can estimate lengths reasonably using the correct unit of measurement: centimeter, meter, kilometer.
I can understand the conversions between different units of length: cm, m, km.
Mass:
I can estimate mass reasonably using the correct unit of measurement: grams, kilograms.
I can understand the conversions between different units of mass/weight: g, kg.
Volume:
I can estimate volume reasonably using the correct unit of measurement: milliliters, liters.
I can understand the concersions between different units of capacity/volume: mL, L.
WAYS TO SUPPORT AT HOME:
When your child asks what time it is, ask them to determine it with different types of clocks.
Practice counting by 5s up to at least 60 so that students can practice understanding how to count in 5 minute increments on an analog clock.
Estimate how long, heavy, and how much space is taken up, then measure it (length, mass, capacity/volume).
Notice road signs that say how many kilometers until the next place, then have your child pay attention to how long it takes to get that far.
Notice the weight and volume of food and drinks (read the labels).
Practice doing conversions between different measurements (ie. 2000 grams in 2 kg).
Cook together, paying attention to how many mLs are in each measurement tool (ie. 15mL in a tablespoon).
