Non-standard measurement

Today I did one of my very favorite lessons- How Big is a Foot! I posted about this lesson last year and you can see the full post here. Last year I had said I wished an administrator would have walked in and today ONE DID! It was fabulous! I had kids all over my room measuring with feet that they had cut out and there I was lying on the floor with two students measuring me and another student taking pictures with my pink camera. The kids really get a kick out of measuring their teachers and classmates. It's an easy lesson to prepare for and it's one of my freebies!

This weekend was super crazy with getting things done at the house. I've decided shelf paper is the devil and I hope to NEVER cut another piece out again. I'm working on things for school and pinning everything I can for organization, closets, and pantries for the house. Because, you know, we teachers have all this extra time and I really should put that time to good use-HA! 

This weekend I also GOT A NEW CAR!!!! WOOOHOOO! 

Y'all, my last car had 224, 609 miles on it when we traded it in. I'm sorry to say that I don't have a picture of me in the car...yet. But I have loved driving to work without the fear of breaking down! 

I hope everyone is having a great week so far! XO


  1. Cute activity! I got a new car in August and I had the same feeling that I was going to break down every day in my old car. I mean the engine sounded like I was driving a embarrassing!

  2. Jennifer - YAY for you that your admin walked in an even bigger yay for you that you got a new car. Mine has 114,000 so you have me beat. Good for you!!!

  3. What a fun and creative idea. I am sure the kids just LOVED this. I'm betting you were the topic of conversation at many a dinner table :)

  4. Holy moly that's a lot of miles!!

    I love when we do measurement. I like the 'out of your seat' math lesson that get them talking, moving, and doing!

    The pic of you getting measured is awesome!
