Funny and Measurement People

I thought you might need a laugh to start your week off right.  This week our story is about the moon (which just happens to go along perfectly with our space unit). We were in small group and I asked my students, "What do you think of when you think of the moon?"  One little girl looked at me and her eyes got wide and she blurted out, "Bumps! Acne! Proactive!"  Clearly we had some misconceptions.

In math we are reviewing measurement so we did our capacity measurement men today.  This is a great hands-on and visual math activity.  Here are some photos!


  1. We did our gallon men this week too! Super cute! I love this activity. It was the perfect after-testing activity. Also, did you follow up with the acne comment? I'm so curious to know where that came from. :) ~Amanda

  2. Hi Katie...Yeah! I am so glad I found another fourth grade blog!!! We are about to start our measurement unit next week! We will have to make Gallon men too! Thanks for sharing!
