Lesson 3_slide 6 (page4)Accurately measuring length often requires two adults.  To measure length

  1. Remove the child’s hat, hair ornaments, and shoes
  2. Lay the child centered on the board or mat with the top of the head against the fixed head piece
  3. One person should gently hold the child’s head gently, but firmly against the board or mat so the child’s line of sight is perpendicular to the floor
