In this station we created a house to go around one of our stuffed reading buddies. Then we had to measure the dimensions of the house. Some of use took pictures of our houses then recorded our measurements on the picture. Some of us went even further and talked about what we measured.
In this station we had a spinner game. Every time we spun the spinner we had to measure the object it told us to measure and add that many cm cubes to our metre stick. Did you know 1 metre is 100 cm? The object of this station is to cover the entire metre.
In this station we trace a friend then find different parts of the body to measure. We record those measurements on the body tracing.
There are still two more stations that no one has worked at yet so stay tuned to see pictures of us hard at work at those stations.
The cool thing about all of this is that Ms. Lirenman doesn't tell us which station to go to. We do all the choosing. She also lets us decide if we want to work on our own, or if we want to work with a friend or two. While we've always had choice with our reading, writing, and word work now she is finding ways to give us choice with our math learning too. You'll have to check out our individual blogs to see what amazing things we've been up to. We know you'll be impressed.
