This is a hands on math center. Can be used with ESL or main stream students. All the kids love the bright pictures and the fun way to learn to measure things.
Measuring, counting, etc....
Describe and compare measurable attributes.
Describe measurable attributes of objects, such as length or weight. Describe several measurable attributes of a single object.
Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, to see which object has "more of"/"less of" the attribute, and describe the difference. For example, directly compare the heights of two children and describe one child as taller/shorter.
Classify objects and count the number of objects in each category.
Classify objects into given categories; count the numbers of objects in each category and sort the categories by count.1
Measure lengths indirectly and by iterating length units.
Order three objects by length; compare the lengths of two objects indirectly by using a third object.
Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units, by laying multiple copies of a shorter object (the length unit) end to end; understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of same-size length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps. Limit to contexts where the object being measured is spanned by a whole number of length units with no gaps or overlaps.
You can use standard or non-standard items. Also included are two different strips of clovers, that you can use for non-standard.
You a ruler, paper clips, linking cubes, water bottle lids etc.
Print on card stock, laminate, cut, and put in a bag. Instant center.
You can use for an assessment or for a take back to your seat activity. Also these kinds of activities can be used while at the guided reading table.
My class loves "center time". They think they are playing, instead they are learning. The parents have told me they love it when their students are learning through play. Recently a parent said, "I'm am not sure what you are doing at school, but my child will not stay home even when he doesn't feel good. He said he wants to see what fun things you will be doing today. I tried to get him to stay home and he insists that I take him to school." That made my day!
