We are working with measurements, and today the kids tried to estimate a bag of potatoes. Well, they have apparently only held a big bag of potato chips because everyone said a pound. Oh boy. The other day I asked them if I had two containers and one was filled to the top, and I poured it into the second contatiner and had water left inside, which would be bigger. Oh boy. That took about 20 minutes. People, there were visuals.Think time. Partner time and whole group sharing. Then I demonstrated again. In other words my kids need H-E-L-P with measurement concepts. This freebie hopefully contains real items they have really held in their hands or have seen in real life.
