"Daily Data" is the collection of data through a question of the week followed by related daily activities that touch on many math concepts. In the September pack students will create data a t-chart and each day they will complete a task related to the data. Tasks include creating a tally chart, writing observations, making addition equations, and transferring data from the original display to a pictograph.
I eventually use these activities as morning work. I will still be modeling how to complete each activity at the beginning of this month but will expect my first graders to complete the activities independently by the end of the month. As the year goes on, the data gets more complex. I plan to post another packet for each month of the school year (February-May packets were posted last year). I teach first grade, but these could be used in 2nd or even kindergarten with lots of modeling.
I would love for you to take a look at my blog where I have posted more descriptions and pictures of the Daily Data activities.
