RAINY DAY COUNT AND GRAPH
This is a fun, no-prep set of rainy day-themed count and graph worksheets for preschool and kindergarten students who need a little practice with counting and/or writing numbers.
These print-and-go worksheets are perfect for busy preschool moms and teachers, because they’re quick and easy to put together. You can also add these pages to your Letter Rr (rain) preschool activities.
To complete this count and graph activity, show your preschoolers how to find and count the first image. Count all of the ducks holding a red polka dot umbrella. Identifying the correct image helps preschoolers strengthen visual discrimination skills.
If your kids have trouble keeping track of which ones they’re already counted, have them use a counter (mini umbrella or rainbow erasers, colored gem, etc) to cover the objects as they count them.
When your preschooler is done counting the ducks with a red umbrella, have him write that number in the box under the first column. Instruct him to continue this way as they count the other five images.
Once your child has completed the I Spy portion of this counting 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 young kids color each column a different color so they can better visualize the different quantities in each column.
When they’ve finished the graph, ask some questions to help them compare and analyze the data. Which column has the most? Which has the least? How many more ducks with red umbrellas are there than ducks with striped umbrellas? How many ducks 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.
