Measuring with Thumbs!

hey everyone! I hope you had a great week and are enjoying your Friday night. :) I've got about 7 more minutes before Four weddings comes on, so I'm gonna make this a quick post! haha. Today, I took my math lesson in a different lesson. I put each step on the smart board and we talked about the skill being taught..measurement. The activity was to use our thumbprints to measure across a heart. I went over each step and had the students repeat back to me. I wanted to see how they would do with the lesson, because sometimes math doesn't go as well as I planned. I think I will continue this method next week, putting everything on the smart board and including discussion questions. Here's the activity and how it came out. It was one of those great lessons and a great way to end a stressful week! :)

they had to write their guess first so they couldn't "cheat"
he did a great job and came very close!
they had to cut and glue before I gave them paint. I kept the lesson very neat and organized


  1. This is a cute idea. A great way to bring the week of valentines to a less stressful end.
