**Comparing Heights**

Family Note

Your child is developing an understanding of measurement by comparing and ordering objects of different sizes from shortest to longest. Build on classroom experiences at home by helping your child record the heights of family members on a doorframe or a large sheet of paper. Measure and mark the same people’s heights again in a few months and note whether anyone has grown taller.

Have a family member measure and mark your height. Label it with your initials and the date.

Help measure, mark, and label the heights of other family members.

Compare heights:

**Solid-Shapes Museum**

Family Note

At school we have been learning about 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional shapes, and children have been noticing shapes all around them. Manipulating, exploring, and discussing 3-dimensional objects helps children learn the names of these objects and builds their spatial sense. Many familiar objects closely resemble 3-dimensional geometric shapes. For example, balls are spheres and dice are cubes. At home, encourage your child to look for and describe 3-dimensional objects to bring to school for our classroom’s Solid-Shapes Museum. It is also helpful for children to notice and discuss the 2-dimensional shapes that are part of many 3-dimensional objects, such as the circular faces on the ends of cans and the square faces on dice.

Look around your home for 3-dimensional geometric shapes. Try to find examples like the ones below and describe them to someone.

sphere: ball, globe

cube: dice, square box

cylinder: food can

cone: ice-cream cone, party hat

rectangular prism: cereal box, book

Bring in some objects to add to our classroom’s

Solid-Shapes Museum.

Answer:

Solid-Shapes Museum.

Sphere: Marble , Oranges , Christmas bauble.

Cube: Table top , Cube blocks

Cylinder: Batteries, Dustbins, Cylinder.

Cone: Vector traffic cone , Cone shaped glass.

**Take-Away Number Stories**

Family Note

Your child has been learning about the subtraction (or minus) symbol. Share stories that involve taking away, or removing, groups of objects to help your child connect the subtraction symbol to real-world contexts.

Cut out the subtraction symbol (–).

Take turns telling and solving number stories that use subtraction. For example: We made 6 pancakes. Our family ate 4 of them. How many pancakes do we have left?

Use pennies or other small objects and the subtraction symbol (–) to act out, or model, the stories.

Draw or write one of your number stories below.

Answer:

There are five oranges in the home. Out of them, two oranges got spoiled. How many oranges are remaining not spoiled in the home?

Total number of oranges in the home = 5 or Five.

Number of oranges got spoiled in the home = 2 or Two.

Number of remaining oranges in the home = 5 – 2 = 3 or Three.

Explanation:

There are five oranges in the home. Out of them, two oranges got spoiled. How many oranges are remaining not spoiled in the home?

Total number of oranges in the home = 5 or Five.

Number of oranges got spoiled in the home = 2 or Two.

Number of remaining oranges in the home = Total number of oranges in the home – Number of oranges got spoiled in the home

= 5 – 2

= 3 or Three.

**Disappearing Snack Trains**

Family Note

Your child has been learning to model “take-away” (subtraction) problems with real objects. For this activity, take all the aces, 2s, and 3s from a deck of cards and shuffle them. Or make 1, 2, and 3 number cards—four cards for each number—out of paper. Your child can help you find or make the cards.

Make two lines of 20 pieces of small snacks, such as fish crackers, cereal, or raisins—a line for you and a line for your partner.

Cut out the subtraction symbols (-) and place them to the right of each snack line.

Players take turns drawing a number card, laying it to the right of their subtraction symbol, and subtracting (eating) that number from their “snack train.”

After each turn, compare the trains:

Which has more snacks? Which has fewer?

Play until one player has eaten all their snacks. Shuffle and reuse the cards if you run out.

Answer:

I am having 20 Fish crackers.

My friend is having 20 Raisins.

I have more Fish crackers than my friend has raisins.

I have more Fish crackers than my friend has raisins.

I have more Fish crackers than my friend has raisins.

Explanation:

I am having 20 Fish crackers.

My friend is having 20 Raisins.

First card:

I took number 3 card.

MY friend took 8 number card.

I have more Fish crackers than my friend has raisins.

Second card :

I took 8 Number card.

My friend took 6 number card.

I have more Fish crackers than my friend has raisins.

Third card :

I took 3 Number card.

My friend took 6 number card.

I have more Fish crackers than my friend has raisins.
