Graphing Galore!

Wow! This morning during Problem Solving Time we looked at all the different types of weather that we had in November. We looked at our weather cards, "analyzed" what we saw and then began to organize our data into a graph! The children discovered many neat things. We arranged the cards into rows first, then we created columns with the cards that were the same. This was a great opportunity to listen to what the children noticed. We call this making mathematical observations. Wow! Some columns were longer, smaller while others had the same amount or equal. Some of the children recognized which columns even had odd or even numbers of cards! Be sure to look at these pictures with your child and talk about what they did!
