About This Lesson

The AFT has prepared sample parent letters on selected mathematics topics for grades K-8. Available in English and Spanish, the aim is to help parents better understand some of the new language in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and strategies they may see their children use on their journey to achieving the understanding and skills required by CCSS. New letters will be added throughout the year. You can personalize these letters with your school name, logo and signature and send to parents or post on your school's website.

Generate measurement data by measuring lengths of several objects to the nearest whole unit, or by making repeated measurements of the same object. Show the measurements by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in whole-number units.
Estimate lengths using units of inches, feet, centimeters, and meters.
Order three objects by length; compare the lengths of two objects indirectly by using a third object.
Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units, by laying multiple copies of a shorter object (the length unit) end to end; understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of same-size length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps.
