Measurement Foldable, Miss. Rumphius, & Flash Giveaway!

Measurement Foldable:

So I genuinely had it in my plans to talk about  the Measurement Foldables that we made today during math. Jen showed me how to make a foldable and came up with the idea of making one for measurement and then my idea was to attach strings that were reflective of the different units.

I am saying this because  Krista from Stellar Students posted this idea on Saturday along with her Measurement Madness unit! You should check it out! She has some great ideas for measurement AND a conversion FREEBIE! Did anyone else make a foldable this year for measurement? Does anyone else also call it a flip book?? 

Here are some shots of my butter beans hard at work! In fact, if you look closely in one of the shots one of my kids is completely covering another kid in her crazed desire to measure! (And yes we have actual measuring implements but they are limited so some friends were using the reference I have on the floor) 

You should also check out the Measurement Anchor chart that Donna posted over at Math Coach's corner. It looks like it took some time but is a great representation  of all the measurement includes.

I won, I won, I won!

If you have ever read the book Miss. Rumphius then you know what an AWESOME book it is. I LOVE reading this to my kiddos. I am excited to say that I won a SUPER fantastically cute unit based on Miss. Rumphius from the lovely ladies at Across the Hall in 2nd Grade! It is available on their TPT store. You could SO use it on any day and not just Earth Day!
I just found out last night so I had to quickly change up my plans for today! 

My favorite part was making the lupines! We N-E-V-E-R do anything just for fun so I just HAD to make the lupines hybrids so that we could incorporate fractions and then we HAD to measure them. All so that I wouldn't feel guilty just hanging something "cute" in the hallway.
