|Hard At Work!|
Well, I MADE IT!! Spring break is finally here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So before I sign off and refuse to think about work for the week, here's one more post about the last few days.
This week we've been talking about tallies & graphing. We did class graphs, graphed our Lucky Charms marshmallows, etc. And a couple of days ago I came up with an idea to end our week with and it turned out to be really fun!
We've been having gorgeous weather, so I created a little sheet with various playground equipment listed (slide, swings, merry-go-round, etc.). Then I partnered them up and took them outside to tally the equipment we had on our playground. We brought the data back and compared info. to make sure everyone counted correctly.
|Some serious counting going on!|
The next day they individually turned that data into a graph. It turned out to be a nice little final activity/assessment of graphing. But of course, their favorite part was being outside and collecting the data. They did a great job of staying focused even though spring fever was personally starting to kick in for me!
If your spring break hasn't come yet, hang in there (and nanny-nanny-boo-boo!! ;). For those of you off this week, have a very restful and happy spring break...enjoy every minute of it and may you return to work rested and rejuvenated for the last few weeks of school!
