Unit G

What Tools Can I Use to Measure?

In the Measurement Unit, we will explore units of measurement – non-standard and standard.

Nonstandard tools to measure length can include objects such as connecting cubes, paper clips, and dominoes.

The standard tool we will use to measure will be a ruler.  Your child should recognize that the units marked on a ruler have equal length intervals and fit together with no gaps or overlaps.


We will also be learning how to tell time to the hour and half-hour using analog and digital clocks.


Children often make sense of time through direct personal experiences such as those they have with daily schedules. You can help by discussing your child’s schedule, your schedule, and your family’s schedule.
