A really great song that I found for length is "Herman The Worm" by Mr. Al. It's a really funny song where a little worm starts off being an inch long, and eats other animals until he's two feet long. At the very end of the song, he's an inch again, and - well, I won't spoil it for you, but you'll love the ending!
Last night, I made this new Play Doh mat for my children to help them recognize small, medium and large.
Heart Size Sorting Mat
Thank you, Dr. Jean, for suggesting Chocolate Play Doh. My kids just loved it! They said the room smelled so delicious. I also gave my students rolling pins and three different size heart-shaped cookie cutters to really get into this Art Center activity. Here are a couple of photos of my kids enjoying it:

Please let me know if you have any great books that you use for your measuring units. I would be so grateful!
