4 get to know you graps and a 4 corners game about interests. Great for learning about one another, learning differences are ok, and lots of math involved.
These graphs are designed to help with students to identify traits about themselves and that others have similarities and differences.It is fun get to know each other math activity. Gender/Hair/Eye Color/Favorite Color
Lots of math talk can be done using graphs. When I do a graph, I teach all of the following:
Vocabulary: graph, most, least, equal, pictograph, bar graph,
1. one to one correspondence - counting each part of graph
2. Writing the correct number
3. Identifying most/least by guessing just looking at the graph.
4. Identifying most/least/equal by counting AND by looking at the written number
5. What does a graph do?
6. How to read a graph
7. Graph names.
8. Graphs can be created to the side, top, bottom
4 CORNERS and find common interests with your class.
Use this for shared reading, shapes practice, counting, comparing numbers and differences between students. (Or just for a FUN activity at the beginning of the year)
This is a Powerpoint Point that has 4 sentences on each slide- one for each shape/corner. There are 11 slides about interests for the game. Students move to the corner that tells their most liked option. (sentences are "I like..." for easy shared reading.
We also talk about differences doesn't mean we can't be friends.
