Hi, I am Ms. Treml and I am getting ready for my 8th year teaching kindergarten! I absolutely love laughing and learning with my students everyday!! I also love sharing my ideas with others and I look forward to gaining new ideas as well! In my free time, I am usually reading other teaching blogs, reading a good book, creating new projects for my students, enjoying the outdoors, and spending time with my wonderful family and friends!
Check out some awesome math centers at my most loved site for early childhood educators! Chalk Talk is having a Math Center Linky Party!
I wanted to share a math center that my students love and it engages them in predicting and measuring. In this center, the students create a nonstandard measurement booklet. I create four-page booklets and place them in my Math Zone with Inch Worms (3 mini green pom-poms glued together with some small google eyes), and crayons. The students write their name on the cover page and then make drawings of objects they will measure on the remaining pages. On the top of the page they estimate how many inch worms that object will be. Then they measure the object and below the picture, they write the actual amount of words. The students love this activity along with being able to use a clipboard to record their measurements if they would like. This activity could also be used with various tools for measuring like Unifix cubes, paper clips, etc.
