What teachers are saying…

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “One of my favorite resources! Love this! It is practical and I have been able to differentiate and make accommodations for my students with it.” - Dolores H.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “My students have been learning the fundamentals of measuring in standard form and learning to count the units rather than refer to the numbers on the ruler. I love that the task cards measure to the nearest inch and half-inch and not all of them have the object starting on the 0. These required more thinking and truly showed me their understanding. I appreciate that they also have the ruler on the cards themselves so I can send them digitally during this pandemic. Thank you!” - Carie W.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “This will be a fun game for stations to review measuring to the half inch. I really like how some of the objects are not lined up at the end of ruler and the students have to actually count the inches.” - Rebecca F.
