Morning Song (JuJu On That Beat)

Inspired by Hope King, start your day off with excitement with this morning song!

As soon as the kiddos come into the classroom, drop off their backpack and get morning work materials they stand by their tables to start our morning song.

Graphing

GRAPHING:

As the students came in from lunch, there was a sign projected on the board ... 
"DO NOT TOUCH THE SKITTLES!" 
Instant engagement. 

I became a leprechaun who needed help estimating skittles for my party. Together we graphed our estimations. After we graphed, students got to open up and count how many were actually in their bag. Then we graphed the actual amount per bag. 
(We are writing letters because we are really upset there isn't the same amount of skittles in each bag!)  

Students went back to their seats and graphed the individual colors using a bar graph.

Group discussions.

At the end we took it a couple of steps further and combined all of our class data!
