Product Description
Measuring with a ruler can be tricky to learn and frustrating to teach! I use this strategy to help my students learn an easier way to identify the inch, half inch, and quarter inch marks on a ruler. Whenever I am teaching this activity, I literally hear students say, "Ohhhhh, I get it!" What else does a teacher want?!

By relating the concept of measurement to something that most students have a solid grasp on, counting coins, it allows the students to gain confidence by using a strategy that seems to *click* with them.

Included in this file are:
* visual aids
* cut & paste activity
* guided practice
* independent practice
* suggestions for use

I hope that this strategy will work as well in your classroom as it has in mine!
