*manipulation*of concepts rather than

*memorization*). It is our goal to prepare each of our students for success in every area of mathematics. There are five fields into which we group our Math Standards:

**Number Sense**,

**Geometry**,

**Measurement**,

**Sorting and Patterning**, and

**Problem Solving**.

This blog entry will cover the Academic Standards that fall under the

**Measurement**category.

**Measurement**

**Comparing Sizes -**Comparing the size of two objects according to length, weight, or volume. The sand and water tables are an excellent place for kids to experiment with volume.

**Ordering Objects by Size -**Ordering objects from largest to smallest (or smallest to largest) according to length, weight or volume.

**Measuring Objects Using Non-Standard Units -**Using chain links, cubes, blocks, paperclips or other non-standard units to measure the length, weight or volume of an object.

**Measurement**is just one small part of preschool mathematics. We have broken Measurement into nine standards:

**Comparing Length**

**Comparing Weight**

**Comparing Volume**

**Ordering Objects by Length**

**Ordering Objects by Weight**

**Ordering Objects by Volume**

**Using Non-Standard Units to Measure Length**

**Using Non-Standard Units to Measure Weight**

**Using Non-Standard Units to Measure Volume**

*In our classroom, each lesson, game or classroom material has been intentionally planned and placed in the room to fulfill our Academic Content Standards.*
