Winter Graphing in the First Grade Classroom

Winter Graphing Printables: 1st grade

This is a completely winter themed graphing unit. (No Santa!)

There are 3 different games: draw a card and make a bar graph, roll a cube and make a bar graph, and spin a spinner and make a tally chart. All of these could be put into a center/ independent station OR they can be used as an intervention in small groups. Also included: 2 worksheets for reading/interpreting a bar graph, 1 for reading/interpreting a picture graph, 1 page for creating a class picture graph, 1 page for creating a picture graph from a story, 1 sheet for creating a bar graph from a story, 1 sheet for creating a bar graph and making up questions, 1 sheet for cutting/gluing a picture graph and interpreting data, 3 worksheets with questions for surveying friends and creating bar graph, and 1 blank worksheet to survey friends and create a bar graph.

I can’t wait to use it all this week with my littles! :)

Classroom Recap & Freebies

So, I haven’t blogged in a few weeks because I really didn’t have anything to blog about… I have a serious case of writer’s blogger’s block. Does anyone else ever feel that way? I haven’t felt inspired to create any new products or to write a post that other people will read. I’ve just been truckin along in my room, staying busy with my class. (Have I mentioned how much I love my class this year? Because I do.)
Basically this post is a photo dump of some things we’ve been learning about the past 2 weeks. Enjoy!
