How You Can Help Kids Keep a Measurement Consciousness {Giveaway}

This year I decided to move my lining up position to a different side of the room. Because of this, I wanted to mark the space with tape so the kids could remember where to line up.  Since I already had this lovely masking tape measured off in inches, I thought I would use it.

This cute ruler masking tape came from Office Depot a couple of years ago.  I put this ruler masking tape along the sides of the door also, so that students could measure their height as they come and go out the door.

(Don’t you love my green neon door! And yes, I’m in a trailer :/)  The tape just counts to 12 inches over and over again, so it is necessary for students to know 12 inches are in a foot.  This allows for them to make conversions to compare heights as well. I placed foot indications on some colored dots.  I didn’t write how many feet on each dot because I wanted to just provide enough support to get them started counting feet.  I placed some blank dots along the tape, too, so they would do some figuring out on their own.

I may have students label their height at the beginning of the year, in the middle, and at the end with their initials on a colored dot.  It will be so fun to watch them measure their heights all year and for them to watch themselves grow!
