A Little Bit of AMSTI and some freebies!!

Hey guys, how's it going?

In math, we have been working on quite a few things!!

Normally, teachers like to read Chrysanthemum 

on the first day of school,  and I see name charts all over the place.

This is actually a math lesson in our AMSTI unit, 

so I like to wait until it comes up in the pacing guide.

Anywho, a week or so ago, 

it was time to discover how many letters we had in our names.

We read Chrysanthemum, by Kevin Henkes,

and then we charted the letters in our name.  

I modified the activity slightly, and voila!!

This week began our measurement unit, and the first activity was measuring shoes.

Yes, everyone had to keep on their shoes!!

They really had fun with this!!!

After using different strategies to measure the length of their shoes, 

they completed this recording sheet and placed it in their math journals.

Alright, I'm off to get some Thanksgiving started around here, 

talk to you guys later!!


  1. Thank you for sharing. I like the template for counting how many letters are in their name. I also liked that you integrated patterns with measurement. Good job!


Thanks for taking the time to drop a line!
