We love our new Math Stations
We are still practicing place value on the smart board.
We are working on afdition facts by matching the sum of a domino to the correct number.
We are practicing manipulating shapes to make a new shape.
We are working in addition and subtraction using pictures.
We are also using www.shepardssoftware.com to play different math games.
We had a lot of fun with our animal projects. We worked hard to research a specific animal and determine its food, habitat, covering -and compare the baby to the adult. After we presented all our information we were also able to tell if our animal was an insect, mammal, reptile, amphibian, fish, or bird.

Today we explored 2 of the qualities objects are measure by...length and height.
First let's look at height (how tall something is).
Who is taller?
Can you compare them and put them in order from least to greatest?
Shelby is taller!!! Oh wait! In order to measure something you must compare them all equally!
Now let's look at length (how long something is)
Uh oh...Landon isn't starting his measurement at the same spot as everyone else!
Now we're talking! These guys are ready to me measured.
We recorded our predictions and the measurement in our journals.
A great app to help your kindergartner with measure my is Measurement HD. We will be using it to reinforce the skills we are learning.
On our second day of exploring measurement we used a Popsicle stick to compare and measure objects.
We started with finding three (or more) things that were shorter than our Popsicle stick.
Then we found 3 (or more) objects that were shorter than our Popsicle stick.
Next, we measured length. We paired up and measure each other using linking cubes.
