I love doing graphing activities each month with our kiddos with different snacks or treats. During March we use the popular lucky Charm marshmallows that can be found everywhere. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE COLORS/SHAPES WERE MADE TO GO WITH THE LUCKY CHARMS CEREAL BY General Mills!!!!!. The kiddos get so excited when they get to use manipulatives (that are tasty) that help them practice graphing, tally marks, addition & subtraction word problems, and much more!
-Picture graph for students “what is your favorite lucky charm marshmallow”?
-Graphing questions page that pertains to the class picture graph
-Sorting page for students to put different colored marshmallows into groups. Kids can color the pieces of candy first. They can count and write the number so that it will be easier/quicker to compile the class bar graph and tally chart. I also included a colored version if you want to use it.
-2 different student data sheets that includes a bar graph, number/tally mark work, and simple math questions that correspond to their marshmallow!
-Student page that they can fill in with class bar graph and tally chart. My kiddos complete theirs while I am doing the class graphs on chart paper to hang up after we are done.
-Two different pages that have colored marshallow shapes that you can use for the class bar graph and tally charts as labels. One page is black and white if you want to color in different colors for your own class.
-student pages that have math questions that can be answered as a whole group or solo if your kiddos are at the level.
-Title/heading for class bar graph & tally chart. I included both black & white and full colored printables. I know how expensive colored ink can be, so I print out all student copies in black & white and have them color them in if needed. I used the colored pages as my class example for the kiddos to follow.
-All fonts, borders, and graphics have links to the TPT or teacher notebook shops.
