Okay so I think I may be adding mostly things for my higher level thinkers and not enough for the sweet-n-lows, as one of my co-workers refers them :)
During the measurement unit I am actually focused on numeracy with my low munchkins and practicing skills such as counting, number writing, and number recognition..... rather than lets say the difference between a balance scale and a bench scale.
One Way to Use:
So this download I print, laminate, and attach to foam for thickness. Then have the children practice writing the numbers 1 to 12 as if it really is a ruler.... then they tend to walk around "measuring" things... I didn't actually make this ruler to be 12"... oh well they'll never know!
Want to be cutesy??
-any of your measurement games can go in a tool box because these are TOOLS of measurement :)
