Growth Chart Notebook

A really fun activity to get your kids interested in measuring and adding and subtracting fractions is to make a growth chart notebook.  Using a measuring tape let them measure their feet, hands, arms, and legs and mark this in their growth chart notebook.  Next, with your help, measure how tall each child is, and mark this in their notebook.  Put the date beside the measurements and write in the next date you want to take another measurement. You might want to space it out enough so that the kids actually see results. (If your kids are like mine, you can probably take measurements every other day and see that they have grown!)
