Here's a super-fun little something you can plug into your day, that’s sure to “bee” a day brightener.
No matter what grade I taught, my students LOVED making glyphs.
They are a quick, easy & interesting way to practice & assess listening & following directions.
Since this is one of my report card standards, glyphs also provide a "hard copy" to use as proof that a child does or doesn't.
Completed projects make an adorable bulletin board, as each one will be different!
I’ve included a cute “glyphs” poster for the center of your display.
Glyphs are also an interesting way to get to know your students.
To practice data collection & analysis, as well as process of elimination, have students pick a partner to "interview", to help them figure out which glyph is their partner's.
I've included a data collection worksheet for this, challenging students to try and solve the "mystery" with the least amount of questions.
Afterwards, for an interesting discussion and “revelation” for some, discuss if and why asking a certain question helped eliminate more possibilities than others, and if strategy was important in choosing which questions to ask first.
I've also included 6, whole-group graphing extensions, so you can practice another math standard.
I'm Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy glyphs as much as mine do.
