We started school this past Tuesday, and BOY, this girl is tirrrrred! Teaching first grade is hard work! Anyone else with me??
I'm here to share a little FREEBIE with you that I created last weekend for my firsties to use in math centers, since our first Math unit this year is Graphing.
Introducing...my Sort it! Graph it! Graphing Bags FREEBIE!! I used to use these graphing bags with my Kinder babies when I taught Kindergarten forever ago. and had forgotten about them until just recently. These are PERFECT for first graders too!
Here's how they work...
Copy the sorting and graphing mats on different colored card stock and laminate. Place these mats in gallon sized Ziploc bags and fill each one with different objects that can be sorted and graphed (pattern blocks, cubes, erasers, etc.) Students can sort and graph the objects with a partner and then ask each other questions about their graphs!
Couldn't be any easier, right??
Well, there you go. An easy peasy math center idea that requires very little prep and objects you probably already have in your classroom! Click the picture below to download this from my TPT shop, and don't forget to follow me while you're there, so you can get emails about my future freebies and products!!
