PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This graphing math pack is a must have!!! This unit runs for one week and includes everything you need to teach data management ~ about penguins! My students love graphing and many children grasp the basic concept of graphing fairly quickly. The next step is to get your students to think deeper and analyse the data. This package will have your students graphing and answering questions using the data from the graph. You will be amazed by your students' progress in just one week!

I have used the word "favourite" several times so I have duplicated the pages to also have the spelling as "favorite."

Graph Titles:
*Silly Penguins
*Penguin Species
*Penguin Daily 5
*Penguins In The Sun
*Penguin Cuties

I am not a fan of loose papers so I staple the tracking sheet and all the activity sheets together to create a booklet. On the front of the tracking sheet I record any observations I have made and I record the child`s success (or struggles). At the end of the week the booklet is sent home for parents. They really appreciate being kept up-to-date with their child`s progress and the booklet is a great review for the end of unit test. You can tear off or copy of the tracking sheet if you want to keep it for documentation or you can send it home. Whatever works best for you!

Included:
*a math tracking sheet
*data picture cards for 5 math tubs
*activity sheets for 5 math tubs
*success criteria cards
*success criteria examples to be displayed with your anchor chart
*title, labels, and scale bubbles to remind your students to label the graph
*center label cards

This is one of my favourite math units to teach. I really hope you and your students love this unit as much as my class did!

You may also be interested in my Primary Math Interactive Notebook that has activities that correspond to this unit. It it great for extra practice or assessment:

I always teach data management for 2-3 weeks so if you are interested in doing another week of graphing I really hope you will check out my other graphing units:

Arctic Antics {A Polar Bear Graphing Unit}

Happy Teaching!

At the risk of sounding like a crazed super fan or a broken record, this unit is fabulous. I have, to date, purchased all and used most of your math units. As soon as I tried your unit which takes students through addition without and then with regrouping, I was absolutely hooked. Your intro. to that unit said that the method would work and it did! All of my students enjoy your units and so do I.

My bees are LOVING the graphing centers! After I taught the graphing unit in small group, I started doing one every couple of weeks as a whole group (cards in the pocket chart and a shared recording page on the document camera) so I can monitor their understanding of the analysis section. I also put one every couple of weeks in the bee boxes and they LOVE them! Thanks so much for a great product!

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  December 6, 2012,  Buyer asked:
Do the students draw a certain number of the picture cards to gather data or do they survey classmates as to which picture they like best?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  December 6, 2012Natalie's Nook answered:
Hi there,
No - the way I set up the centers is that the students use all the cards given for each graph. I have them sort that data to tally the number of each and then graph that data. All the questions are geared to the students having used all the data cards given for each graph. I hope that helps to clarify - if not please contact me again:)
Thanks for the question!

On  February 20, 2012Barnettca (TpT Seller) asked:
Please note that I have found a spelling error in the Winter kid fun. On the graph for this the first word in the tally chart says SLATING not skating. When you fix this can you please send me a copy of the corrected page. Thanks

On  February 20, 2012Natalie's Nook answered:
Hi Beth!
I am sooooo sorry! My kids just finished this unit ~ I have no idea how we didn't catch the spelling mistake! Thank you for letting me know! I have downloaded the corrected version. Let me know how I can email you the new page.
Thanks!
