What Are Some Good Measurment Books?


We just had our kindergarten grade level for our district.  We are currently working on our Measurement Theme to match the current standards.  Just wondering if any of you have come across some good measurement books that you would be willing to share the titles for with us.  Thanks so much for your help!!

There's one called Measuring Penny where the kids measure their dog in all different ways.

There's another called Millions to Measure, but it's more difficult.

Inch by inch by Leo Lionni
How big is a King's Foot- we trace our feet and then make a bed of all our different sizes. Then we compare the bed to one made with a standard foot- which shows why we need uniform measurement system.

Measuring Penny
Inch by Inch
How Big is a King's Foot

We use all three of these. I will check my bookshelf in the morning.

The books by Math Counts are great. They have one about length and weight. They have them on Amazon if you want to take a look.

I personally like Me and the Measure of Things. I don't remember who wrote it, but you should be able to find it on Amazon.

It's about non-standard measurement. Very cute! We trace our foot and use it to measure things.

Here's an annotated list of titles I regularly recommend.

I also recommend this short annotated bibliography of titles and web sites for first grade students. (One of my preservice teachers wrote this.)
