Measuring Up

Every grade level does a unit on measurement or reinforces measurement skills. The three go-with books that spring immediately to my mind are Loreen Leedy's Measuring Penny, How Big is a Foot? by Rolf Myller and Leo Lionni's Inch by Inch.

But wait, look at the list that Tricia at The Miss Rumphius Effect has put together. This is a great compilation books and poetry. Note them down and dazzle your faculty next time someone asks for "measurement" books.

While you are there check all her s. They are excellent, especially the one on China.

Hi Camille,
Thanks so much for the link. I make lists for every major area that I teach my students and realized one day that it might be a nice idea to share them. The good thing about doing it on the blog is that lots of teachers and librarians write to let me know about the fabuolous books I've missed.
