Measurement anchor chart.
Hello Everyone, We've been working hard on our measurement unit in math. We have brainstormed many different ways to measure the length of things using nonstandard units of measurement. Now we are comparing those with standard units. Today we investigated the inch. We compared the differences between an inch ruler and some of the nonstandard units we have been using. Kiddos had fun measuring their feet and hands! Our length measurement anchor chart A mini unit includes these pages plus a poem, and a written expression component. Or click here! :) Thanks for stopping by today! Hope our ideas measure up!!! :) Joyfully! Nancy

Counting money idea  change it to a turkey and use feathers with different change on them! @Mary Crabtree
Show me the MONEY! I spent ____ on my ice cream cone. show different ways to make up amounts of money
Counting money ideaThen we are going to "buy" each others ice cream and count back our change from one dollar!
Counting money idea could turn into an interactive bulletin board have the cone only have a piece of velcro, and then laminate squares of paper with the answers for each cone and put velcro on the back, kids have to match answers to cones
This is a 2nd grade blog but I love this teaching math activity.

A giant ten frame made out of a plastic tablecloth and black duct tape. The squares are big enough for kids to stand in to do kinesthetic math in kindergarten.

I made this ten frame out of a plastic tablecloth and black duct tape. The squares are big enough for kids to stand in so that we can do kinesthetic math. Good for showing fractions.
Make this ten frame out of a plastic tablecloth and black duct tape. Put different values on the squares (may include integers, decimals, fractions, etc) and give 10 students a number from 110. The student who is #10, must find and stand on the greatest value, #9 the second greatest value and so on. Students can explain their choices and work together to discuss their order.

The egg and bean game. Number sense, subtraction, addition  use other thematic hats, fruit, etc. depending on the time of year.
Math Center, Teaching Math, Subtraction Game, Children'S Math, Missing Addend, School Math
Egg & Bean Game/Missing Addend... Part Part Whole! Fact families! Could be cute in the spring with egg and jelly beans!
In this activity, the teacher places some beans on the table, and asks the children to count them. Then, the children hide their eyes while the teacher places some of these counters under the bowl. When they open their eyes up, they can see how many of the beans are left visible outside of the bowl. This should tell them how many are under the bowl. Basically, this is a missing addend game.

First Week of School Math
These giraffes and zebras turned out adorable... if I do say so myself! :) I've had a lot of questions about my ChitChat charts. This is how I do my Morning Message. The idea originated with the Buzz Book from the KCrew. I needed it to have a little bit more "meat" to it and I wanted it to be a way to not only cover the important skills such as phonics, sentence structure and grammar but also serve as a review for what we had learned the previous day. Another component of my Morning Message routine is Oral Language and manners. My message always ends with a question. So when we finish the written part I read them the question and the tell them to turn to their partner and "ChitChat". They learn how to take turns listening and speaking. Once they've had a few minutes to chat about the question I ask them who wants to share. They never know when I might say, "Who wants to share what their PARTNER said?" This keeps them accountable for listening. Think Math is a GREAT math warmup that I do before math time two or three times a week. The kids LOVE it! (I shared how to do this in my Spring Math Journal Resource). Think Math always starts with: The answer is _______________________. What is the question? The kids raise their hands and tell me their equation. We always work it together to see if it equals the sum we are looking for before we write it on the chart. One reason I love this activity so much is because ALL kids can participate. Some of my kids give very basic answers like 8+1 and some can give 3 digit equations, and then a few of my sweeties who can't do it on their own know that they can say, "Give me a hint". Because they need a little extra help I will give them the first number in an equation and they have to figure out what to add to it. (I usually give them a number that is very close to the sum that we are working on so that they can be successful). After we've come up with several equations we write a word problem to go with our answer. I was in WalMart and I saw these Cheese Balls and I had to have them! Not for the cheese balls (they taste awful BTW....but Kinder kids will eat anything LOL!) I wanted the container! It reminded me of the Barrel of Monkeys game I used to have. So, I took this..... and turned it into this...... This adorable Math game will be part of my Zoo unit resource. The kids have to put the monkeys into their correct "troops" by matching the equations with their sum. This is the recording sheet for round 1. Next week they will have a different recording sheet that will require them to write the equations and their "turn around" facts. I have a lot more ideas for literacy and math games that use the Barrel of Monkeys theme. The monkeys took a little bit of time to cut out...but that's the beauty of having teenagers who want gas money! :)
