Today is my first day of summer, woohoo! I have big plans today…sleep in, eat when I want, swim, read, catch up on The Bachelor. It is going to be great!!! It is Thursday, so that means Thrifty Thursday. Today’s deal is a class favorite; Find, Tall and Graph packs. Read on for a Throwback post about them.
Math in my classroom consists of half the class working at math tubs and the other half split between me and math journal practice or a parent station. The math tubs always have a variety of activities that provide spiral review for my class. One of their favorites are the find, tally and graph activities.
Each pack has a few different activities you can do. Here is what is included:
I usually introduce this in the fall with the find and graph activity. I either place the counting sheet in a plastic sleeve or I laminate them. The students are then able to use a dry erase marker to cross off the pictures they have already counted.
As a class, we discuss which had the most? The Least? Next we may work on the same pack of choose a different pack with a different picture collage. I introduce the tally page next. The tally part is always a review for the class. The addition and subtraction part is always a challenge for a few, but they get a hang of it.
The last thing I introduce is the make your own math problem page. I start out pairing my students up to make problems. As a team, they challenge another team with their math problems they made. They love this! It is a great way to challenge those who need it.
I have made these for many themes because my students love them. The set above is the Find, Tally and Graph Ocean set. I have put some of the sets into a Find, Tally and Graph binder for my early finishers. They have the option to choose the theme they want.
