Measuring BIG... Use A Big Stick!!
Students continued to practice careful measuring with yardsticks today! If you're measuring something big... you need a BIG tool, and today yardsticks were the tool of choice. We reinforced our learning about feet, inches and how they relate to yards and then the fun began! Our mission, to work together to carefully measure the distance between 2 X marks in the hallway. Easy, right... but some of the distances were up to and over 20 yards long (yes, indeed we do have a very long hallway that hosted today's math lesson)! We will move on to temperature and volume later in the week.
We bid our friend Isaac goodbye tomorrow. Some special surprises are in store for our students, in honor of celebrating our friendship with Isaac!
Tomorrow promises to be a beautiful day for outdoor play!
