Teaching non-standard measurement to Preschool students allows them to communicate their reasoning and mathematical thinking in a simple, yet fun, hands-on way! In Unit 7, students will learn about comparing weight, height, length, size, and capacity, and measuring using non-standard units (e.g. counting bears, snap cubes, paper clips, etc.). 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.
Here are the 7 Units that will be included in the Preschool Math Made Fun Curriculum:

Let’s take a look at Unit 7 in Action…
There are 21 Hands-On Centers in this Unit! I’m excited to show you each center and how it works.
CENTER NUMBER 1: Which Side Holds More?
Count the number of snap cubes in each side of the scale. Find the numbers that match the quantities. Decide which side is holding more.
CENTER NUMBER 2: Shorter Than Me
Cover the items that are shorter than you are.
CENTER NUMBER 3: Taller Than Me
Cover the items that are taller than you are.
CENTER NUMBER 4: Weight- Heavier and Lighter
Flip 2 cards. Decide which object is heavier and which object is lighter.
CENTER NUMBER 5: Height- Taller and Shorter

CENTER NUMBER 20: Measure In the Garden
Line up manipulatives along the line to measure how long or tall each item is.
CENTER NUMBER 21: Weight- Spin and Cover
Spin the spinner. Cover an item that matches your spin.
NO PREP Practice Pages- We all know that kids need a lot of practice to help master math concepts and to help them retain the knowledge. So I’ve made sure that each Preschool Math Unit will have a variety of fun NO PREP practice/worksheet pages for students to practice, practice, practice! These NO PREP practice pages allow students to master math concepts through cutting and pasting, coloring, dice games and more! Best of all, you can refer back to the Preschool Math Standards page and see which standard each page covers! Furthermore, you can connect these pages to a center that covers the SAME standard!
Unit 7 includes posters to help assist in teaching the concepts of height, length, width, weight, capacity and size.
