As promised, here is one of the ideas from the Ohio Kindergarten Conference I attended last week. Kim Adsit suggested using old bulletin board border as a tool for nonstandard measurement. To share this idea with our staff, I purchased two packs of bulletin board border at the Dollar Tree to give everyone a piece to try it out. Children use the picture on the border to measure objects around the room. One of the border packs I purchased has cupcakes around it; the other has smiley faces. I created a recording sheet for these border packs. You can get your copy of the recording sheets by clicking on the images below.
