Math measurement worksheets for preschool children ages 3-5. Size, height, length, width and depth recognition worksheets
In this section, we will introduce to your child the early stage concepts of measurement and the vocabulary that is used. We will primarily look at size, height, length, width, depth and how to look at objects and compare the difference. Your child will, for example, be then able to identify which is biggest, which is smallest, the longest, the shortest, the tallest, the thickest and the thinnest.
Encourage their interest in measurement using items around you. Consider comparing your hands and feet with your child's or other objects that are close by, such as cups etc. Anything where a comparison can be made. Remember that a child learns better with a hands-on experience. In addition to learning about measurement, there are lots of objects where your child can practise and increase their vocabulary.
Ensure your child is alert before starting any learning exercise. You want them to remain confident, so praise him or her lots and make learning fun. If your child gets tired, it's best to stop as they will lose concentration.
Where there is any coloring or writing required, always use a sharp soft pencil and not a crayon.
Below are seven interactive worksheets for your child to work through to introduce the language of measurement. He or she will learn about: size (big and small), length (short and long), height (short and tall) and depth or width (thick and thin). Each page has a number of interactive exercises to try, and some printable worksheets.
Below are a further eight worksheets on measurement for you to print out and work through with your child. These will help to reinforce what he or she has learnt above. There are also lots of coloring opportunities for your child to keep them entertained.
Lastly, we have two revision worksheets for you to print out and work through with your child. Both worksheets bring together what your child has learnt with color and measurement.
Once you have finished working through everything with your child, and they have gained a good understanding of being able to compare the difference in measurement of objects, it's a good idea to keep playing games with him or her around the house asking questions regularly comparing different items, i.e. which is thickest, which is thinnest etc.
