Kindergarten Math Workshop ~ Measurement

October 15 Deedee 1 min read

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.

I am so fortunate that my district allows me to teach math in an authentic way.  We are not bogged down by a series that does not offer real, hands-on, exploration.

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!

    Hi Deedee! I LOVE your math journal prompts and so do my kids. I also use the math units that you and Deanna made.We just finished the first unit and I'm so impressed with how well my kids know their shapes both 2d and 3d. Amazing.

    Hello! I have a question about math journals. Do you do them together whole class at the beginning to explain what you are expecting them to draw, etc? Also, what if you have a child that is struggling? Do you explain it to them and write notes in their journal that you helped?

      Yes, I do them all as a whole group. In the beginning we do a lot of modeling, but now we are pretty much on our own. 90% of my class cooks right along, but I do offer more support for those who need it. I don't really document who I help.

      It's part of our writing units and math units. You can get it for free in my FB fan file. 🙂
