While our last few units of math have revolved around learning different strategies for adding and subtracting, we are switching gears for our newest unit of study, which will revolve around measuring and telling time! While we started the week off with practicing time to the hour and half hour, we are now working towards our goal of telling time in 5-minute intervals. Here are some fun games you can play at home to help practice telling time:
We've also begun to practice measuring this week (and learned a lot about working together as a team!) We began making our tie fleece blankets for Project Linus during our Friday Centers, where we got a lot of practice measuring with a ruler, cutting, and tying. We also brought our own lovies to school for some extra helping hands :)
Mr. Fosher gave us some great tips for measuring and cutting our tabs!
We also worked together in groups during math time to create snowmen to winterize our bulletin board. The next day, we measured the different parts of our snowmen in inches using rulers and measuring tapes.
Before we know it, there will be enough snow outside to make some real snowmen :) We can't wait to continue to make our blankets next week and practice a bit more with measuring and telling time.
