Hi, Forum Members.

My kindergarten students will be doing an art project featuring their handprint--to show how big their hand was at the end of kindergarten. I want it to say

This is how big my hand was at the end of kindergarten.

How would I say that? Here's my guess:

Esto es el tamaño de mi mano al final del kinder.

That's the best I can do. But, to me, it's more like saying "This is the size of my hand at the end of kindergarten". Is there a way of saying This is how big my hand was at the end of kindergarten? Thanks for your help!

    In Spain we usually invert the order in this type of sentence:
    Asi era de grande mi mano cuando terminé la guardería.
    Otra opción:
    Mi mano era así de grande cuando terminé la guarde .
    ( Muchas veces acortamos "guardería" a " guarde" igual que " colegio" a " cole").
