Perimeter is the space around a shape or room. We used cm cubes to measure a rectangle with the following dimensions= length 7, height 6. Students learned how to double each side, add them up, then add those numbers up to find the final answer. This was a fun math day!!
I am a mom of 4 teens! I have been teaching for 19 years. As a K-6 Collaborative Elementary teacher, I have taught grades PK, K, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. In each grade I have also taught Special education, written IEP's, modified & accommodated lesson plans & activities and I have also Co-Taught! When I began teaching Pre-K and then Kindergarten, is also when I was in the process of earning my Masters Degree in Education in Curriculum & Instruction. As a result, I combined my love for teaching, learning and writing into my "2nd and 3rd jobs" which are: Writing curriculum and writing for my handful of websites!!!
