Long and Short

Caleb wanted to do some “studying” but I wasn’t able to prepare for homeschool since we just got back from holiday and I was still on holiday mode. Anyway, here is our instant homeschool activity! Grouping and comparing long and short straws.
I cut the straws and Caleb sorted them by length and stuck them on play doh.

All done!

Caleb did this activity quite fast and wanted to do more! I guess he really missed our study time. So I gave him some popsicle sticks to sort.

He described the sticks as fat and thin.

When Caleb was done, he still wanted to do some more so I challenged him to use the sticks to make a cage for his dinosaur. This took some time for him to figure out and had some help from me 😉

He was happy with his creation.
