1-2-3 Come Make A Glyph With Me
This Flower Glyph is a super-fun little something to do for spring or at the end of the year when your kiddos have "blossomed". No matter what grade I taught, my students LOVED making glyphs.
They are a quick, easy and interesting way to practice and assess listening and following directions, as well as a super-fun way to get to know your students better.
Since this is one of my report card standards, glyphs also provide a "hard copy" to use as proof that a child does or doesn't.
Completed projects make an adorable bulletin board, as each one will be different! I've included a colorful "Glyphs!" poster for the center of your display.
I've included 2 flower glyphs in the packet. One is pretty easy, the other a bit more complicated.
Choose which one is best suited for your students. The glyphs are also easily adapted by simply tweaking the directions to fit your needs.
I also made 3 helpful "direction" posters to use with younger students, should you want to give the more advanced glyph a go with them.
Next up is a Bee Glyph. Besides the glyph and a poster for the center of your display, this packet includes a few extras.
To practice data collection & analysis, as well as process of elimination, have students pick a partner to "interview", to help them figure out which glyph is their partner's.
I've included a data collection worksheet for this, challenging students to try and solve the "mystery" with the least amount of questions.
Afterwards, for an interesting discussion and “revelation” for some, discuss if and why asking a certain question helped eliminate more possibilities than others, and if strategy was important in choosing which questions to ask first.
I've also included 6, whole-group graphing extensions, so you can practice another math standard.
Since graduation is just around the corner for kinders and preschoolers, today's featured FREEBIE is a super-cute bio writing prompt craftivity.
This is also appropriate for other grades as well, simply skip the grad hat.
Well that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by.
Hopefully all of the crazy "frost warning" weather is over, and I can finally start gardening! Woo hoo.
The sunshine and dirt are calling me. Wishing you a fun-filled day.
