  Classroom Freebies Manic Monday

Linking up with Teaching Blog Addict &
Classroom Freebies to offer two little freebies!

Click here for the freebie signs!
They are in power point so you
can edit how many students tall.

We learned all about the Statue of Liberty! 
We found out it is her nose and it is 4 1/2 feet long!

Students compared their height to the nose.

We learned the Statue of Liberty 
is 151 feet long. We measured that 
distance so we would have an idea 
how tall that is. I then had the 
kiddos lay down so we could see 
how many kids tall she is.  I didn't 
have enough 1st graders, 
so I borrowed the 2nd graders!

We discovered she is 38 kids tall!

 Halfway there!

38 students tall!

from my Sight Word Circle pack.
Download the preview file.
Cut out, fold and laminate.
I included two of the circles for
you to check out if you are interested!

My students had fun the other
day when I introduced these
during reading groups!
It is a great way to practice
sight words and gives a little challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!
