Introduction to Kindergarten Measurement and Data -Classification
Wow! This Kindergarten Measurement and Data -Classification lesson was the last we had to do to cover EVERY one of the kindergarten Common Core math standards! This felt so good to complete, Jack was feeling just as accomplished as I was. So, what we did here was classify seashells to practice classifying items into groups based on similarities. As a bonus, we also made a shell collecting bag.
