Length and measurement have been our focus for the past few weeks during math instruction. Students used non standard units to measure different objects around the classroom. We began by practicing our new mathematical language to compare two objects.

Are the objects taller or shorter than the links or yard stick?
Once we became experts with two objects we moved onto comparing three objects.  Have your child show you how they can make their body large, larger and largest or short, shorter and shortest.
Which links are the longest?  Which links are the tallest?
1st graders will now be moving into number sentences and word problems to 20, so please continue to work on automatically knowing addition and subtraction facts to ten!

Common Core State Standard: MD 1 Order three objects by length; compare the lengths of two objects indirectly by using a third object.
