Estimating is a very important skill and can be done during many of
the other activities we've discussed...
"How many crackers do you think Mommy gave you?"
"Ok, let's count them and see how close you were."
After measuring the child, have them guess how tall you are. Then
measure and check.
"How many M&M's do you think are in this bag?"
Always discuss how close the child's estimate is to the actual
amount. It's good for you to make an estimate too and explain to them how
you made your guess. This will help them to learn the art of estimating.
