# Measurement And Dinosaurs: Schedulin’ Sunday

This week we are continuing   our dinosaur unit with our dinosaurs research project!   We are also working on measurement and continuing VOWEL TEAMS BOOTCAMP!

And as always you can download my lesson plans by clicking the image below!

## This week we’re we are continuing our Vowel Teams Bootcamp!  This week is AR words!  So that means circle maps, word building,  and word writing.

For AR words, we do this super fun anchor chart with a SHARK!  I make shark teeth with AR words.  Students read the word and glue the shark’s teeth in his mouth!

# Math: Measurement

In math, we are working on measurement using non-standard units and measuring how big and how heavy objects are.

First, we sort by size.  I give the kids strips of paper and they sort them by big or little.

Then we predict if one object is heavier or lighter than the other and we use our balance to weigh the two objects!  For a recording sheet for this activity, CLICK HERE!

Then we read the book Measuring Penny which is all about measuring with non-standard units.  Then we use dog bones to measure different objects!

Finally, we use our Spring Into Measurement unit to start working with rulers and non-standard units to measure pictures!    Each of our measurement creations comes with rulers featuring non-standard themed pictures.  We learn how to place the ruler on the edge of the picture and measure to the edge of the picture. And we’re learning vocabulary such as height and width!  I think this is such a valuable skill for our students to learn so that’s why I created our measurement creations to make it fun and engaging!

## We wrap up measurement with the MEASUREMENT OLYMPICS!

We have a summer olympics themed measurement creation where we compete in different events and measure the results.  First we do a shot put (cotton ball), a discus (paper plate), and a javelin throw (straw) and the long jump!  The kids  measure their distance and record the answers!
