Math in a Classroom Book

We're nearing the end of the year, yet my kids still love reading our classroom books.  We just made a new one to go along with all the measuring we've been doing lately.




First we made clocks from this Pinterest idea I found that you can see above.  They're made out of toilet paper or paper towel rolls with a slit that I cut so they'd fit around their wrists.  Then I walked the kids through the process of drawing the clock face.  (I assigned them times to the hour and half hour.)  Then they traveled the room, asking others what time it was according to their watch, and wrote down times on the sheet below.



At the same time, I took pictures of all the kids' watches so I could make this book.





Math and classroom books do indeed go hand in hand.  My plan is to find more ways to integrate the two!
