Setting: This book is about a little girl who was sent home with an assignment to measure things so she decides to measure her dog, Penny. After this she measures other dogs. She learns through this process that she is having fun from learning. Personal Reaction: I love this book. I think it is a great lesson starter. I would read it to my students before beginning the lesson and show them how much fun measuring can be. Classroom extension: I would send my kids home with instructions to measure what ever they want at home and to keep documentation of what they have measured. I would have the kids make group the things they measured into a small, medium and large group.
