Talking about what special activities your family can do during the holidays will help your child to develop skills in planning, sequencing and measurement.
As you talk about what you’ll be doing and the order you’ll do it, your child will be learning about sequencing and predicting. As they explore the sequence of events they are exploring time and how long events take to complete.
Talking together about what you will do during the holidays and when it will happen helps your child to explore the different ways we can measure time. Time can be measured by a clock, with numbers or by counting how many days till something happens.
