Activity/strategy name and materials required How to do the activity Key principles for doing the activity and comments
Drawings

Drawings of houses, stick man families

Draw pictures of houses with windows and say 'Look...this house has three windows...it is smaller.

Draw stick man families and say 'Look...two children here - this family is smaller.'

Avoid working on smaller with a contrasting word (such as larger) until the child is confident with 'smaller'. Contrasting concepts taught together can be confusing for the child.

Once the child is confident with both larger and smaller (from work in separate activities on separate occasions) you can incorporate both concepts in this activity.

Washing up

Dirty dishes

Sink/bowl

Water
