How loooong is our step? Math story: Little ChickPosted: April 3, 2014
Measure the length of our legs and our longest step with string.
Use two colors of string for the two categories of measurement. I tied a knot on the leg measures to distinguish them from the step measures, but that of course didn’t prevent the kids to copy me a tie knots on all their pieces of string, too.
Little Chick by Amy Hest and Anita Jeram
Original idea for the story book choice is from the book “Cowboys Count, Monkeys Measure, and Princesses Problem Solve: Building Early Math Skills Through Storybooks” by Jane Wilburne, Jane Keat and Mary Napoli.
