Measuring Day 1: Pinterest How I Love Thee!

I love the beginning of something new... especially a new math unit! We are starting our discovery of measurement in our classroom. While we have done some measuring throughout  this year it's our first official unit on measurement. I am so excited!!! Why you may ask? Well after much searching of Pinterest I found some awesome ideas!

I wanted to start Day 1 with this awesome chart from Joyful Learning in KC: How awesome is it?

I loved what my students came up with today. Here's our chart:

Not quiet as cute but it definitely showed their learning! My kids did a really good job on their measuring and recording sheets. Many of them showed their awesome writing skills by copying my modeled sentence: "I measured a crayon. It was 5 cubes long."

I'm really looking forward to measuring these cute guys tomorrow:

They came from an awesome set by Nicole Ricca of Mrs. Ricca's Kindergarten. There is a whole set that I'm going to color tonight for the kids to measure tomorrow :) I can't wait!

What is your favorite way to teach measurement?
