Kindergarten Measurement Activities, Vowels, And Space: Schedulin’ Sunday

kindergarten measurement activities lesson plans

Week 32 of kindergarten is all about measurement activities, vowels with Vowel Bootcamp, more continents, and space! It’s also state testing, which means there are altered schedules!


You can get our lesson plan templates here:

We follow a required foundational skills curriculum and supplement it with our TKS BOOTCAMP resource, especially for extra practice and small group work! We are moving onto CVC-E words with our Vowel Bootcamp! Our TKS BOOTCAMP curriculum works with ALL curriculums or as a stand-alone resource! This week we are focusing on blending and decoding words, writing words, reading decodables, and lots of word chaining!

We do circle charts to segment, spell, and read words.

The students also do writing and word matching!

Phonics: Word Mapping

We will also use our Word Mapping mats during this time to work on our segmenting, spelling, and reading words! These have been a true game changer for my kids, especially those struggling with segmenting sounds and spelling words!

We’re also using our Digital Word Building Resource to do word chaining to work on blending CVC words!

We also used our glitter letters clipart to make glitter letter cards, and we’ve been using these cards in whole groups and small groups. The kids LOVE them! (This is CLIPART. You must insert the letter clipart into a document to make letter cards!)

Reading: The Continents

Our district has a required curriculum, and we are now learning about the continents. I was very nervous about this but the kids really got into learning about the continents. They’ve been excited to learn about different places! This week, we’re learning about Australia and Antarctica!

This week we are reading the books and creating the evidence organizers.

Math: Kindergarten Measurement Activities

Our district has adopted a new math curriculum (AGAIN!), so we’re trying to figure it out because it’s a lot, and it’s not aligned with our state standards, so there’s that. We’re using the curriculum and supplementing it with our MATH IT UP! and TKS BOOTCAMP curriculums.

This week, we’re doing measurement! We’re using our Math It Up! Measurement resource for our kindergarten measurement activities! We will be doing shorter/longer, heavier/lighter, and measuring how much things weigh!

Our first kindergarten measurement activity starts by making a web of measurement words and things we measure.

Then the kids get strips of paper and arrange them from biggest to smallest!

Next, we read Measuring Penny and we use dog biscuits to measure things in our classroom!

Another one of our favorite kindergarten measurement activities is to measure our friends. We use the tiles on our floor since they’re 1 foot squares! The kids estimate how long they will be and then they get to measure their friends!

Our last two measurement activities are for weight. We compare the weight of objects and measure how much the objects weigh using cubes!

Space Research Project

Now that we’ve become astronauts, we can begin exploring the planets. Each day, we visit a planet, view actual NASA photos of the planet, read about the planet, and create our facts chart.

Mad Science Thursday: Alka Seltzer Rockets

Since we’re exploring space, we’re going to build rockets! We use plastic film canisters and Alka Seltzer to make our rockets!

Space Greeting: Morning Meeting

This week, our greeting is a space greeting! This is a PowerPoint greeting where the kids will pop up from the moon! (This video was recorded in 2020 when masks were required!)

For our activity, we’re going to play I Have Who Has! We’re introducing the game this week so we will be playing I Have Who Has Numbers!
