PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Feeling like there isn't enough time to get everything shoehorned into your math program? This resource utilizes a short and simple daily math activity which allows the students to generate a representational bar graph using clothespins. The six page handout explains how to label and use the clothespins together with detailed directions and visual representations. (Attendance is a natural byproduct of this activity.) Included are 57 sample questions as well as 14 possible discussion questions that will guide the students to correctly interpret and gather data from the clothespin bar graph. A suggested bibliography of selected books about graphing is included.

Set-up of the Handout:

1) Page #2 gives the specifics on how to label and use the clothespins and make the chart. Preparation is minimal and the cost of materials is nominal.
2) Pages #3 and #4 list 57 sample daily questions.
4) Page #5 lists 14 possible discussion questions.
5) Page #6 is a bibliography of 19 books that talk about or include graphing.

This activity is perfect for many age groups! I teach Kindergarten and love the idea of the students using the clothespins each morning to answer a simple question. The created graph would provide a great deal of information to analyze, and I am sure the students would love being able to quickly realize who is not at school each day (it is a daily conversation during attendance!). Great idea and wonderful extension questions and books!
