If you're always in search of an easy prep effective way to give your kindergarten or first grade class more practice with creating and interpreting tally marks and graphs, here's a set of 22 winter class graphs that you'll love!

Graphs in this set include favorite winter sports, hot chocolate, bird watching, animals that hibernate, and 18 more! There are no December holiday graphs included in this resource.

Data collection pages provide the opportunity to construct a bar graph with your own class data. Some pages also include tallying, interpreting data, and turn-and-talk activities.

Four vocabulary cards illustrating graphs, tally marks, rows, and columns are included in this set, as well as a poster that illustrates the parts of a bar graph.

Use a graph as part of your calendar activities or a math lesson. You can even make graphing part of an integrated curriculum activity for science or writing. The data interpretation questions on these graphs will make it easy to do!

When you complete the graphs, it’s easy to turn them into a class book, to continue to offer your students opportunities to practice reading and interpreting graphs. A class book of graphs is a great addition to your math centers or class library! Just print the included winter graph book cover and bind or staple together with your graphing pages.

How does graphing and tallying help your little learners?

  • Building graphs together is a great way to build classroom community! As your students get to know one another, you can guide discussions regarding our similarities and differences at both the individual and cultural levels. Try using a graph as the basis for a morning meeting or an extension of a math, science, or social studies lesson!
  • Many of our young students aren’t confident in expressing and justifying their opinions. Tallying and graphing together is a way to encourage your students to think about their own opinions, express them in a kind way, and not just go along with whatever their friends say.
  • Collecting, recording, and analyzing data helps our students make sense of their world. It teaches them to expect and recognize patterns in math ... and in life!
  • Experiences in recording and analyzing data like the ones in this set address math standards {K.MD.B.3, 1.MD.C.4} in a fun and interesting way that relates to our students' own lives!
