Measurement Fun!!!

I love teaching nonstandard measurement! We measured everything you can think of with a variety of different tools this week!! I made a couple of new printables for our lil' measurement masters!!

Measure It!
Let your students pick a measurement tool (cubes, counters, dominoes, craft sticks, etc. all work well) & estimate/measure 5 objects in your classroom. Here are a few pictures of the fun....

 Measure a Friend!
We all know how much our kids love partner activities!! My loves had so much fun measuring  their friend/partner! No pics of this activity because we were all so busy....and yes, I was also on the floor being measured. ME=BIG kid!

On another note, several of you have asked about my plans for future math journals and centers. I love making these resources and plan to continue to make them throughout the year!! Christmas center packet is in the works!!
