This is a great little math activity to go with your Back to School unit. Kiddos work independently or with a partner to count the colorful school items. They use tally marks to complete the recording page. When students come to consensus on the number of each item they graph their totals.
I usually make a large class tally chart to come to consensus on totals as a class before graphing. I just blow up each image on the copier and and create the tally on chart paper. Or use yourActiveBoard!
Works great in a center as well!! My class LOVES doing these!
