It is hard to believe, but we are almost finished with our 2nd unit in math workshop! This week we are working on measurement. We discussed the importance of aligning our measuring tool (in this case a string) with the object we are measuring.
My students love working with a partner during our explore time. Students were given the task of exploring items that were longer or shorter than their string.
We talked about aligning the measurement tool to the item that is being measured. Armed with this knowledge they took!
My kids were spread out in my room and going full steam ahead. This picture below shows how I group partners. I have peanut butter and jelly partners for writing and ketchup and mustard partners for math. The partner charts are part of the units.
No item was too long or too short for the task!
We loving having the opportunity to explore our classroom mathematically! Who know that a little piece of yarn could be so much fun!
