Have you ever used glyphs? Need a FUN way to teach problem-solving and data organization (graphing)? These glyphs will do all of those and are appropriate for 1st and 2nd grades. They can be used in large or small group instruction or for independent math center activities. All have some type of fairy tale theme which makes the students love them.
Examples are given with each glyph as to how you can use data individually and as a class.
The glyphs can also be used with PK and Kindergarten in small group instruction time and then used in whole group math instruction. Background information about glyphs is given along with teaching points for using the glyphs.
Included are instructions for center use. Children will learn what a glyph is, how to use glyphs to organize data and will enjoy seeing their work on graphs in the classroom.
Types of glyphs included:
✺ Coloring page glyph where students read and follow the directions to color a page. This is the easiest type of glyph to make and the easiest to graph by the different attributes.
✺ Picture glyph where students read and follow the directions where they color, cut pieces out, and glue to make a picture.
✺ Use for Morning Work, Fine Motor Practice, Center Work, and Reading Practice.
There are 8 glyphs which include:
✺ Prince and Princesses
✺ “My Kingdom”
✺ The Three Pigs
✺ Jack and the Beanstalk – Two versions – One for developing readers and one for older students or stronger readers. Use one or both versions!
