Measurement Pocket Chart
Great Tool for Classroom
I haven't used this yet for a lesson, but I'm very impressed with the quality. The third grade chapter on measurement is one of my least favorite to teach, but I think this will make it easier. The one thing I"m really excited about are the rulers! They are cardstock, but I laminated them. This will make it so much easier to teach inches and centimeters. Kids bring all kinds of junky rulers to school, and some have so many units on them that they are really confusing. This kit comes with "inch" rulers and "centimeter" rulers, which is great because we can use them separately for the different lessons. I can't wait to have my life made easier!

Good Idea - Horrible Quality
My students have difficulty with measurement, so I thought this would be a great tool to help them do better. When I received the item, the red lettering on the chart bled and was pink, and the white paint stuck on the clear pocket. I called the company, and they shipped me another one free of charge - no questions asked. Great! When I got the second chart, IT WAS EXACTLY THE SAME - MAYBE WORSE than the first one I got. At this point, I was extremely frustrated because I had to call again about the same issue. The worst part was, you could see that it bled pink from the packaging. It wasn't like I had to open it to notice it! Once again, customer service was very cordial, and offered to send me yet another one, or refund my money. I said, "Hopefully, the third time will be the charm." She said she would note for someone to personally inspect it before shipping. I haven't received it yet, but I am hoping it will be ok because it will be very useful in the classroom!

Not good quality product
This measurement chart was very flimsy and some of the pieces were stained. The clear windows had permanent substance that would not come off.

More bang for the buck!
There really are a lot of pieces to this kit! It would have been nice if the cards and pictures were already laminated, but that probably would have added a lot to the cost. The pocket chart is nice and sturdy, but the white print came off a little onto the part folded against it in shipping. Otherwise, I was very pleased with this purchase.

This pocket chart has more than I can use! Great visuals with room for a lot of creativity for me to present the material the way I need to.
