Who doesn’t love a pancake?

We recently had a little bit of indulgence at the centre by way of teaching the children how to make pancakes. Sounds tasty and fun doesn’t it? Well, whilst both fun AND tasty indeed, there is also method behind the madness…

Measurement skills help us describe the world around us in accurate, standard ways that others can understand. Before they learn to measure with standard units, like inches on a ruler, young children are already notificing differences in sizes, distances, temperatures, and more.

By teaching the children how to make pancakes and how to interpret different measurements, we are giving them freedom to express themselves more accurately in their daily lives – and of course teaching them an excellent skill that will no doubt make them extremely popular at the next brunch meeting that they host!
