Measurements


I used the die cut machine to make leaves as a measuring tool.  Then I measured the children and took pictures.  We then made a class book of how many leaves tall they were.  One page per child. 
I placed the book in the math center and they love it.


They also got into partners and measured things using different toys.  They then had to tell me that the item they were measuring was, for example, 5 bear counters long.

Such a creative approach for counting and measuring - a very meaningful experience for young children!
