One of my very favourite children's author - Oliver Jeffers

After watching the video, you'll see why I love this author. 
First off, he writes and illustrates beautiful picture books. 
Secondly, he writes wonderful stories with boys as the main character. 
Thirdly, he's quirky and funny which boys and girls really love. 
Enjoy the video.

How Many Band-Aids Tall is Your Giant?

The kids worked on trying to figure out how tall the giant was in Band-aids? Here's some of the work they do during math and problem solving.

We started our Band-Aid Investigation last week. We're having a great time learning to measure and problem solve. Here are some quick shots to show you what we've been up to. Sorry it's been over 3 months.

They built their own measuring tool based on criteria and then we've used the tools to measure how tall we are in Band-Aids.
From here they needed to do a tremendous amount of problem solving.

Are you doing anything with measurement or Band-Aids that's fun and engaging?
