Raise your hand if you create graphs with your students! We do!! I try at least 2-3 times a week to create and collect some sort of data from my students so that we can talk about it and learn how to compare, contrast, and most importantly; make sense of the information we are looking at.
I got this AWESOME graphing pocket chart from Oriental Trading Company this summer and I’ve been using it every chance I get!
Our new math adoption includes a question as part of our daily routines and this pocket chart was perfect for capturing that data. I love that I can take the number cards out if we need all the columns and that there are pre-printed cards included. When one of those don’t work, I just turn one of the header cards over to the back and write my question there! There are also 50 picture/word cards included so that you can ask all sorts of interesting questions.
Check out some more fun ways we used this pocket chart and how we incorporated our first science lesson and graphing!
