I really try to give my kids as many hands-on, tangible experiences with different things as I possibly can to help them make connections. This time around I let my kids make their own little spiderlings for pictograph making purposes. They’re getting really good at identifying the difference between pictographs and bar graphs. Soon enough, we’ll introduce pie graphs, too.
Now I’m gearing up for the weeks ahead. I’m sure y’all have been to the Dollar Tree lately and you’ve probably seen these…
Don’t ask, but this year my kids are seriously obsessed with zombies. Random? Yes. Very. That’s their choice of play on the playground. A few of them write about zombies during writers workshop. It kind of cracks me up thismuch. ANYWAY…I found these little zombie eyes at the Dollar Tree and knew my kids would love to work with them…especially this time of year…so in to my cart they went. And so did the little pumpkin ice cube trays…aka: my October ten frames.
