About a month ago...I was in need for an activity that I could incorporate area and perimeter.
So I went to my first source for finding inspiration....Pinterest!
I found this pin
Which led me to Scholastics website with several great ideas on perimeter and area
So I decided to give it a go...
I gave each student a piece of centimeter grid paper.
 Let me tell you...it was hard for some of my kids. 
I had to model a lot of the letters, especially K, M, and N
A few students needed extra paper.
After they wrote their names, they had to find the area and perimeter of each letter.
 When they finished, I mounted them on black paper.
I had to cut and paste some of the names together.
 Here they are hanging in the hallway!  I love how they turned out!!

Also...Emily from I Love My Classroom and AMC from Looking From Third to Fourth are having a giveaway for reaching 1,000 followers!!  Stop by for several chances to win! Congrats ladies!
