When your child helps you to make kebabs they are listening to instructions and hearing and using the language of measurement. They are sorting and grouping the ingredients by colour, size and cooking time.
As they help to make the kebabs they are exploring the different language and ways we can measure. We can measure by:
- time - how long does it take to cook
- size - how big or small will we cut the pieces
- number - how many will we make
Grouping, sorting and creating patterns with the ingredients helps your child to develop keen observation and visual discrimination skills. Visual discrimination and observation skills are important for reading and writing and noticing the different attributes of an object.
