Use the Item sheet as a guide, feel free to think of your own things to measure. Let your kids measure with the monsters then write the answer down, e.g: Pencil = 4 small monsters long. Use the same size monster to measure one item.

Tip: Tell your kids: Use small monsters to measure small things and use big monsters to measure big things. If your child is measuring a large item and they run out of monsters, show your kids how to put one monster from the back in front of the monster in the front, but still keep track of the number of monsters they used.

After your kids have mastered measuring with monsters, teach them how to use their hands to measure things. Then teach them how to use their feet and big steps to measure things.

How to use the charts and Point cards.

Before starting any new routine with your child, discuss it with them first and make it fun.

The Big A3 point card system.
Each cloud has 10 stars inside. This chart is for all the small things you would like your child to do. Like, sharing, using their manners, being quiet when asked, doing their home-work. Each time your child does what they are asked to do, you can mark a star. You can either reward your child after just one cloud or after the whole card has been marked.

The Goal Setting Chart.
Teach your child about goals by actually setting one for your child. For example, getting themselves dressed in the morning, learning to tie shoe laces. Place the card somewhere easy to see everyday. Set a goal, and choose a reward, like an outing with dad or lunch with mom or movies with the whole family. Add a mark on the chart every time the desired behaviour is achieved. If your child skips, you can decide to start from the beginning, take one away or just keep going.

Don't forget to remind your kids to keep doing the desired behaviour. Just because the fun of earning the prize is over doesn't mean it's time to go back to the way it was before!

My Daily List

The Chore Chart

The School Weekly Planner
