Early Childhood Math/Cognitive Measuring activities help children learn about capacity through hands-on exploration. Dried beans should never be swallowed, so use alternative materials (like water) with younger children.

Math Problem Solving: Exploring Capacity

Kids have a lot of misconceptions about capacity, and they can really only be cleared up through hands-on exploration. Sadly, I don't think they get opportunities for this like we did when we were kids. Instead of playing in a sand box or with cups and bowls in the bathtub, kids are playing with iPads and Wii's. And so many districts (mine included) are taking away sand and water tables from kindergarten, in favor of more "rigor." Because of this, kids are not building the schema necessary…

A Little Measurement Conversion "Trick" {video}

One thing that I am finding I have to spend a lot more time going over now is measurement conversions. In the past, I would touch upon it, but since it wasn't a key standard, my in depth study of it was limited, to say the least. But now, with SBAC looming and conversions being SUCH a big part of all of the released questions, I am finding myself really diving into this skill. Knowing the actual units of measure doesn't seem to be a problem for my students. But it is making the conversions…
