Today we read the book Big Dog...Little Dog (Beginner Books(R)). After reading the story we measured each child using yarn. We had the children go around the room finding something that they where bigger than and something that they where smaller than. Once they found something then they reported back to one of the teacher and we dictated what each child said. At group we had each child come up and tell about what they found that was smaller or bigger than they were. Once they reported we put their yarn up on butcher paper with their picture.
Once the activity was done we place different types of measuring tapes in the math area so that the children could continue with experimenting with measurement.
