Oh, Snap! It's almost August!

Hi Friends! 
I'm linking up with the Teacher Deals and Dollar Steals linky!  
Honestly, this picture couldn't say it better, right?! 
How is it almost August??


I have been busy prepping for back to school and trying to get my math stations in order.
One of my students' favorite math stations is the measuring station. I completely updated my Magnificent Measurement pack!



It it appropriate for up to two months in a math station or tub (August/September). The measuring mats are filled with fun, back to school items!

 It is so important that students begin exploring measurement at an early age and have access to different manipulatives to do so.

My pack includes 20 measuring mats, with arrows to show the students how to measure (length/height).



The recording sheets support measuring with 3 different units (unifiix cubes, bears, and a ruler for inches) so that you can choose what is best for your kids!


The unifix cubes are great for students just learning about measurement. I always start the year off using the unifix cubes with my kinders!


Later on, some of my students are ready to begin using a different unit of measurement. I move those students on to using the bears. The bears are more tricky to manipulate because they only have one flat side and they don't line up as neatly. 


Every year I have students who have already had many experiences with measuring using non-standard units of measurement. It is so important that those students are able to further their learning too. The inches recording sheet is perfect for those who are just beginning to learn how to use a ruler.

You can grab this pack on sale today through Friday, July 17th for $3.00!

Have a HAPPY week!
