Resources to support:
See separate sheets – top tips for measuring with a ruler – sighted and non-sighted.
Use a wide range of containers from large to very small to experiment and understand capacity and volume at the concrete stage. Provide lots of opportunities for concrete experience.
Measuring Spoons Activity
Jumbo Eye Droppers
6 jumbo eye droppers from Learning Resources, you could add a number to each dropper. The stand makes a great Braille cell!
Adapt other resources – I used a tactile matching game here from the RNIB. I turned over each cylinder and added a Braille label with a different amount of money brailled on each one. The child then selects the coinage to make up the amount of money and places it in the little indented location in front of each cylinder.
