Valentine Count and Graph Worksheets
This is a fun, no-prep set of count and graph worksheets for kindergarten and preschool children. It is perfect for busy preschool moms and teachers, because it’s quick and easy to put together. You can also add these pages to your Letter Vv preschool activities.
To complete this count and graph activity, show your preschoolers how to find and count the first image. Count all of the pink polka dot hearts with a striped border. Finding the correct hearts helps kids build visual discrimination skills.
Now, have your preschooler write that number in the box under the first column. Instruct them to continue in this manner as they count the other five images.
Because this activity is a little more challenging than others I’ve shared, your kids might find it helpful to cover the hearts with counters as they count
Once your preschoolers have completed the I Spy portion of this activity, show them how to graph their results.
Have them color one square for each image they found according to the image at the bottom of each column. I like to have kids color each column a different color so they can better see the difference in each column.
Now that 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 solid red hearts are there than red polka dot hearts? How many polka dot hearts are there altogether?
There are a couple of different ways you can use this count and graph activity with your students. To use these pages in a math center, print one copy of the graphing page for the center. Laminate it or slip it in a dry erase pocket.
Then, print out a graphing sheet for each student in the class. Let your preschoolers 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.
