In math we have been working on making graphs. We made pictoral graphs, vertical graphs and horizontal graphs. Needless to say, they have had lots of practice.
You can find great Halloween stamps at Joann Fabrics. For under $3 I got a small bag with 12 different stamps.
Each boys chose 2. We typed the names of each student at the bottom of the page and made a simple T-bar chart at the top of the page. Using the all wonderful clip boards, the students went around asking their friends which of the 2 stamps they chose, was the one they liked best. After each child answered, their name was crossed off the bottom. Great reinforcement of the names...
The next day, they used the answers to complete both a horizontal and a vertical graph. Sadly, I did not photograph the graphs, just the collection of the data.
