Teaching non-standard measurement and data to Kindergarten students allows them to communicate their reasoning and mathematical thinking. When students become comfortable and efficient in understanding and using these forms of measurement, they are able to eventually apply these skills to standard units and more complex data analysis.

**In this math unit, students will learn how to:**

*Identify attributes for measurement (i.e. big, heavy, tall, long, short, etc.)

*Compare and order objects

*Use non-standard units to measure common objects

*Collect and compare data

In Kindergarten Math Made Fun Unit 8, students will be given a variety of opportunities to measure items and analyze data. Math becomes hands-on, fun and engaging as students master the centers. This unit is loaded with 27 Hands-On Centers and 37 NO PREP Practice Pages!

I place the NO Prep Practice pages in sheet protectors in a binder…

## LET’S SEE SOME PICTURES IN ACTION…

## HOW DO I ORGANIZE THE UNITS?

I chose to store the math centers in Sterilite bins, because they don’t take up too much space. It is a tight fit, but I find that they work nicely for me. However, if you choose, you could store the centers in a larger container as well. Within the bin, each math center is stored in a gallon sized ziplock baggie.

Hi, Annie!

I love your products and have been studying this kindergarten bundle. I would like to know if you are planning to create a 1st grade and 2nd grade math bundle. I am an elementary resource teacher with very few math resources. It would be an awesome seamless transition from one grade to the next using your products.

Thank you!

Deb

Hi Deb!

Thank you for your kind words! Yes, I do plan on making 1st and 2nd grade. I’ve already started working on the 1st Grade Math Curriculum, so stay tuned!

Kindly,

Annie
