Describe and find it
Playing with words
This week use the good weather to play with water and recap language of capacity.
Use different shaped containers to fill and empty. Introduce half-full, overflow/up to the top
Consider which container has the most water in.
Consider which container would hold enough water to fill two cups/three bowls etc
Order various shallow and deep containers – which will hold the most/least? How many containers will it take to empty/fill the water tray? What could we use the water for that we tip away?
Is it full, empty? nearly full? Is it a big container? Is it smaller than this one?
more, less, full, empty, overflowing, top, bottom, pour, half-full
Play a game :)
Try counting the number of spaces moved, explore numerals using a dice or count the images on the dominoes.
