Practice using science tools, add task cards to your sensory table, or open a pretend play bakery. Little learners will LOVE scooping, measuring, and creating recipes.
To play: A student will create a secret "recipe" by keeping track of how many scoops and what measuring cups/spoons they use. After they create and write their recipe they give it to another student who tries to re-create the same measurements. The two students then compare to see if their creations are the same!
You will need:
1. something to measure (water, sand, rice, oats)
2. 2 things to measure into (I used glass vases because they are so easy to see into and compare measures)
3. Printed cards (You can make B/W photocopies and print as many as you like OR use the colored sets, laminate and use dry-erase markers.)
There are many colors to match the measuring cups and spoons of your choice!
