Print this work on cardstock and laminate. This work is a great introduction to abbreviations. You can ex- plain to children that we use ab- breviations to shorten long, fre-quently-used words or terms. There are hundreds of abbrevia-tions, so this is only a small sam- ple. A child who is interested in learning more can certainly re-search the topic and come up with more abbreviations. These cards can be divided into two sets, if you like, and since it contains abbreviations for both standard and metric measure-ments, you can omit whichever one you don’t use (although I think it’s nice for kids to be fa-miliar with both kinds of meas-urement). Other impt. abbreviations include:
months of the year days of the week country names state or province names
There’s a wide range of ways to write abbreviations: some are all caps, some have periods and some don’t. In many cases, it’s acceptable with or without the  period; caps or no caps. For ex-ample:
am
 or
a.m.
or
AM
. A fun book on this subject is called Punctuation Tales: The Amazing Abbreviation Machine  by Justin McCory Martin, avail-able from Scholastic.
