Wooden sticks

Before you toss those sticks your child brought home build in some Literacy and Math! Here’s a simple idea: Measure their length against your child’s arm and make two separate piles; one which are shorter and one for longer sticks. Then make predictions about which pile has more and which has less. Count them to confirm and use language like “yes 9 is more than 5. Our prediction was right!”
