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…

We recently started a study on measurement for math. We started with capacity. We have already completed a mitten capacity investigation ....

Help your child practice his skills with volume with this printable worksheet, which asks him to measure how much liquid items can hold.

The weekend has come and gone, I am sure they go faster than what Monday and Tuesday do - ah well, I eventually get everything done that I need to!

Measurement is a great opportunity for our students to participate in hands-on activities, explore their environment and learn a bunch of new math vocabulary! :) Debbie Diller tells us that it's overwhelming for children to remember all the measurement vocabulary we ask them to use, especially if we teach all the strands of measurement at once. She said, "This is a very important (and foundational) area of mathematics, so be sure to provide enough time to teach measurement concepts well."…
