I am going to use the 3 tote bags to hold my Dr. Seuss books so that the kids can grab a bag to take to the reading center. The note pads and pencils will be in my writing center. The crazy bands and erasers will be in my treasure box, while I use the stickers to mark their work. The pins are for my "Happy Hall" teacher friends to wear since we all do Dr. Seuss at the same time. Last year we even dressed up as Thing 1 and Thing 2, complete with blue wigs!
Anyways, since I was in a Seussian mood, I decided to share a graph, die and tally mark set I made. You can use the graph with the die by having the students roll the dice and graph the results. If you'd rather they work on tallying, you can give them the tally sheets so they can interview their fellow students and ask which character is their favorite. They can then use the tally sheet to complete the graph. I absolutely love teaching graphing, it is my favorite part of the math curriculum and my kiddos really seem to enjoy it too. I can make a graph for any theme or occasion and often do! The best thing about this is that after the kids are used to the format, I can put the dice and graphs in math center as a solo activity and the kids flock to it! I give my kinders an hour of free choice centers a day and it warms my heart to see them choose math center as if it's just as fun as home living or blocks (which it should be!).
