Glyphs Galore: Glyphs and Graphing Activities for Back to School
Jun
29
2012

Instead of using surveys this year to get to know your students, try incorporating glyphs into your classroom! Glyphs are pictorial forms of data collection. Glyph is a fun way in which to connect math to other content areas.

Students color and draw on their glyph according to the directions on the direction page. Then, students are able to read the glyphs and collect data about the topics for the glyph. This pack includes three glyphs:
1. Bumblin' Back to School (General interests and information)
2. Buggy 'Bout Books (reading attitudes and preferences)
3. Fairy Tale Glyph (introductory activity for fairy tales)

Once glyphs are completed, students find ways to display the class data - bar graphs, pie graphs, pictographs, tables, etc.... To make it easy, to do this...I've included multiple graphs, tables and plots for students to display their data. I like to assign groups to one specific data set. For easy data collection and a cute display, hang up all glyphs on a bulletin board.

Another activity would be to write facts from the glyphs on sentence strips. For example,
"About half of the class loves pizza."

Lastly, this is a good way for students to introduce each other to the class! They have to use the glyph to figure out information about their partner.

Flying High Read and Write the Room
Jun

2012

 

Read the Room is a favorite part of our literacy program. My kiddos love to Read the Room! In this engaging activity, students search the classroom for High Flying vehicles containing Long i words (-igh, -y). Once located, the words are sorted and written on the recording sheet. Students then read their words to the teacher. This is a great way to assess individual mastery of Phonics skills.

 

Directions for Use and Common Core Standards are included.

Ladybug Time Memory Match Card Game - QUARTER HOUR
Jun

2012

The purpose of this game is to practice time to the QUARTER HOUR. Students practice time visually using analog and digital times with this memory match card game. This game can also be used as an extension of the story, The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle.

Includes: 1 sheet of analog time cards and 1 sheet of digital time cards. With a total of 24 cards (12 digital, 12 analog).

Directions: Cut out cards. Shuffle cards and place them face down in a random order (generally in even rows so they can practice making arrays, but usually by the end of the game they are jumbled up). Students will flip two cards over to match the analog time to the digital version. If the cards don't match, the student flips them back over. If the cards match, the student will keep them. The student with the most cards at the end wins!

Built for letter size paper for easy printing.
