While I was looking for something in the basement I came across a box of all my teaching posters. When I saw this bar graph one I knew that Emily would have fun using dry erase markers to create a graph.
1. I found all the C-A-T magnetic letters that we had and hid them in our rice krispies sensory tub for Emily to find.
2. After she found all of the letters she sorted them. I used pipe cleaners linked together to form a circle for her to sort them into.
3. Next, Emily placed the letters on the bar graph chart that I had from when I was teaching 4th grade. We compared the number of letters and talked about which had the most and which had the fewest.
4. Finally Emily colored in the chart with dry erase markers. She took off one letter at a time and colored the square.
