Hi teaching friends! Hope your March is ending out with a bang, and that the weather is heading out like a lamb. Not so much here in northern Ohio where we had a bunch of white stuff flying around during Spring Break – what?! Hopefully the spring thaw is on its way and to get you in the mood, I wanted to stop by and mention the release of a brand-new interactive bulletin board: April Showers Measurement!
Need something cute for spring, yet also a learning experience for your K/1 students? This interactive bulletin is just what you were looking for! It has everything included and is specifically used to target the following Common Core State Standards:
- K.MD.1 Describe measurable attributes of objects, such as length or weight. Describe several measurable attributes of a single object.
- K.MD.2 Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, to see which object has “more of”/“less of” the attribute, and describe the difference. For example, directly compare the heights of two children and describe one child as taller/shorter.
- 1.MD.1 Order three objects by length; compare the lengths of two objects indirectly by using a third object.
- 1.MD.2 Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units, by laying multiple copies of a shorter object (the length unit) end to end; understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of same-size length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps.
Of course, you can always re-create what you see below on your own no problem! If you want to save yourself time and energy though, feel free to keep reading more about what I have listed for you.
With 56 pages in total and best suited for grades K-1, this file includes the following:
- Bulletin board borders
- Week and Day Labels
- Large Daily Task Questions
- Weekly Student Answer Sheets
- Bulletin Board Header Letters
- Envelope Labels for the Student Answer Sheets
It pretty much has everything already ready for you – and I adore the umbrellas and galoshes! There are seriously so cute to look at throughout the day.
Again, if you want to create your own version, I always encourage you to feel free to do so if it saves you some pennies in the classroom. But, if you prefer to save that time and spend it with your family instead, I have done the hard work already for you. What a fun bulletin board to have up when your students return from their holiday weekend.
Either way, I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend and celebrates the traditions with those you care about!
Here’s to thinking spring!
