Printable count and graph worksheets are a lot fun for preschool and kindergarten students! They can practice counting and writing numbers from one to ten with these pages. Then, they’ll graph the results of the “I Spy” page which is a great time to start a math conversation using words like more, less, most, least, and all together.
As you plan out your preschool lessons for the year, be sure to add animal-themed activities like this one.
JUNGLE ANIMALS COUNT AND GRAPH
This is a fun, no-prep set of jungle animal themed count and graph worksheets for preschoolers who are learning to count and kindergarten students who need a little practice extra practice.
These print-and-go worksheets are perfect for busy preschool moms and teachers, because they’re quick and easy to put together. You can add these pages to your Letter Jj, animal, and jungle themed preschool lessons.
To complete this count and graph activity, show your preschoolers how to find and count the first image. Count all of the adorable tigers. Identifying the correct animals amongst all of the animals on the page helps little ones strengthen visual discrimination skills.
If your child has trouble keeping track of which animals they’ve already counted, have them use a counter (mini animal eraser, colored gem, etc) to cover the objects as they count them.
When your child is done counting all of the tigers, have him write the number in the box under the first column. Instruct him to continue this way as they count the other animals on the page.Once your student has completed the I Spy portion of this math activity, demonstrate to them how to graph the results on the other page.
Have them color one square for each object they found according to the image at the bottom of each column. I like to have preschoolers color each column a different color so they can better visualize the different quantities represented.
When they’ve finished graphing their results, ask some questions to help them compare and analyze their data. Which column has the most? Which has the least? How many more tigers are there than lions? How many animals are there altogether?
There are a couple of different ways you can use this set of preschool graphing worksheets with your students. To use these pages in a math center, print one copy of the I Spy page for the center. Laminate it or slip it in a dry erase pocket.
Then, print out one graphing sheet for each student in the class. Let your students write the numbers on the counting page with dry erase marker. Then, they can color their graphing page to be turned in for assessment.
You could also laminate the graphing page and let your students use dry erase markers, as well. This is a great way to make the activity reusable for both group and individual use.
