I Mustache You Glyph
LOOKING FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT? This becomes a student favorite because the base of the glyph uses student pictures. This glyph becomes a teacher favorite because it is low prep and full of hilarity…just what you need to send them on their way to summer vacation with a smile and a heart full of great memories.
Glyph includes:
*Directions for creating the glyph (One of the questions in this glyph asks children about their favorite theme. I included pirates, bats, superheroes, penguins, and Polar Express on the first version of this glyph. Version two of this glyph allows for you to write in five themes of your choosing. For example, pirate could easily be exchanged for ocean in this glyph. This product is not editable. Version two simply has a line for the teacher to write in their own themes.)

*Colored pieces for students to cut out and glue on their picture to represent their data.
*Black and white pieces for students to cut, color and glue on their picture to represent their data. (These are my favorites, and they save on colored ink.)
* Pieces for a whole class graph. (Simply cut out and glue on poster board. This makes this glyph perfectly adaptable for kindergarten.)
*Two recording pages for students to organize, represent, and interpret their data.
*Writing project for students to write letters to next year’s class.
