We have been exploring with different materials to measure objects and ourselves.
Students have used tape and straws to measure each other in the classroom.
They also traced their shoes and measured the length of their shoes using a measuring tape.

Please allow your child to use different objects to measure things at home. These objects may include straws, blocks, spoons, etc.
We are continuing to explore measurement by using rulers and meter sticks.
Homework sheets: students are using numbers (block size) to measure. Use the same block ruler on the sheets to measure different objects at home such as an eraser, a cd case, a pencil, etc.
