Do your students love to measure? Let me introduce you to Stella Standard and Nolan Non-Standard! They are twins who both love to measure but Stella uses standard measures such as rulers, scales and calendars. Nolan uses non-standard units like his fingers, paper clips and coins. Read their story and introduce your students to Stella and Nolan! Also included are easy to read, step-by-step posters that show kids how to measure with both standard and non-standard units. There is a cut and paste activity that could be used anytime during the unit and an adorable craftivity based on the book How Big Is a Foot? by Rolf Myller (perfect to use with Kindergarten Everyday Math lesson 5.7).
This unit has everything you will need to get kids measuring with both standard and non-standard units.
