Build a class graph weekly through the use of the 5-minute-a-day bundle! This helps students with data analysis and understanding the components of a graph!
This 110-page 5-Minute Daily Data Analysis & Graphing Board Bundle for Entire Year
is designed to meet the data standards in the TEKS and Common Core for elementary classrooms. CCSS listed below. This assists you in meeting the following TEKS (Texas): K.8BC, 1.8BC, 2.10ABCD, & 3.AB.
After reviewing the STAAR test (from Texas) it is obvious the weight that is put on the importance of graphing and data analysis. In third, fourth, and fifth grades, there were many mathematics questions that involved data on the 2013 Released STAAR. Overwhelmingly, tables were the most used format for collecting and organizing data in each of these grades.
Knowing this, I made incorporating data a daily routine in my kindergarten elementary classroom this past year and wish to share it with yours! Can you imagine the results in an upper grade classroom if every teachers spends five minutes per day on data analysis?
This pack will help you get the students collecting and organizing data, transferring to the tables that are seen frequently on tests, and analyze it using a scaffold of questioning that build through the week.
It is amazing how five minutes a day can accomplish an in-depth graph study each week that will have students talking about data. I have made things simple in this Print and Prep pack by including most things already made. There are a few teacher preparation steps, but only requires gathering a few basic supplies that all teachers have at least a dozen of lying around.
I included graphing question headers
(for multiple categories and “yes” or “no” questions for early childhood), variety of voting ticket/ballot/cards
that students use to create graphs, data recording sheets
in different sizes and formats when students are independent, and the best part, the data analysis question cards
. These cards come in color or black and white. The cards provide a scaffold to build critical thinking skills in all students and can be used to differentiate instruction when necessary.
This routine can be started at any time, not just at the beginning of the year. When you are ready to make the plunge, just print and prep!
You will be pleased with your students’ progress towards understanding data in a few short weeks. Once the students understand the process, using gradual release, this can become a math center. This is especially necessary in the upper grades so the students make their own conjectures about data and are able to apply their knowledge.
No matter, the grade level, your students can benefit from your commitment to data analysis this upcoming school year. Pick a wall, print, and prep! This is labeled as K, 1, 2 just because there is not a complex graphing piece, however, it can be used in any elementary classroom.
