Free Play - Measurements

I remember 4.5 yo DD1 having seen a measuring tape and the way I and her dad had used it, started to measure across the doormat, bed, flooring marble square and some other things that were in her sight. She used to read out the number without the units. Then, when she heard me using units in my conversation, asked me what it was and used them for a while too. Then came in the measuring scale for kitchen purpose. She started weighing small items on it and read out how much it read. Today's free play with vegetables involved her seriously weighing the vegetables and reading out the whole number along with units.

Children hardly need to be taught as a lesson. They craft their own learning from the resources that they have been provided with.
