How Tall is a St. Martin's 1st Grader?

1st Grade will be exploring various aspects of height and measuring in conjunction with the on-line collaborative project, How Tall Is A First Grader? The purpose of this project is to collaborate with other first grade classrooms, learn math, reading, and writing skills, find out about each other, and have some fun.

Fall Measurements:
St. Martin's 1st Graders were measured the first week of November. We have a TALL class this year:

After completing their pictures, 1st Grade played some measuring games:
