Well hello there, friends! Sorry for the absence this week… soccer season started for our little one, plus lots of birthday parties, family gatherings, and the such… all of which have kept my family very busy!
But, I’m back and here to share some fun measurement activities with you.
I love using Hope King’s Measurement unit each year. The activities are hands-on and very engaging! No one knows how to engage students quite like Hope! We read “Inch By Inch” and made our own animals to measure in inches. This was the opening activity to our measuring unit 🙂
Of course I always love kid art and seeing their unique little personalities shine through their work!
It was so funny to see the groups with little feet try and make theirs larger or look at it like, “ummm this isn’t right!!” We had great a great conversation about the benefits in measuring with standard units. Only a few of my groups got really creative with this. I love how these two groups even drew the queen in bed! The purple one says, “Keep Calm and Boss On!” on the blanket… so cute!
I was thrilled to pieces when I saw that Alisha posted this measuring activity on Instagram. She used First Grade Blue Skies’ Bunny Directed Drawing to practice measuring with a ruler. So, we did the same today! Such a fun way to incorporate the holidays, a little art, and math!!! You can get her measurement printable HERE 🙂
Playdough Puzzles are a great way to start off the year! You can get playdough CHEAP and students feel comfortable playing with it even in an unfamiliar environment! bit.ly/B2STopTen... See MoreSee Less
