Letter S Snowflake Graph

Snow, snow everywhere!  I just love this time of year.  I know some of you loathe snow, but being a California girl {for 25+ years}, I still find it fun to have Colorado snow in my new wonderful state!  To continue our graphing skills {money graphing, heart graphing}, this week we will be sorting snowflakes by size and then graphing our results.

I love allowing the kids to pick-up, move and manipulate the items they are graphing rather than counting items from a picture on a worksheet.  I always attempt to use REAL things they can touch to make it mean more.  You can get the snowflake graph here.

Coin sort and graph

We have continued practicing coin recognition by sorting the 4 main coins {penny, nickel, dime & quarter}.  I made simple sorting mats and a simple graph.  Students get hands-on practice by sorting the coins, counting how many of each they have and then showing their results on the graph.  You can download the graph here.

Penny & Nickel Sort

Playing with money is super fun!  Give each kiddo a handful of pennies and nickels and ask them to sort using the sorting sheet provided.  They’ll think it’s a game, you know it’s coin recognition and sorting rolled into one, plus counting to get their final results and you could even compare {which has more?  which has less?}!  Continue reading
