Students identify favorites in this exciting activity!
Read the story I Had a Favorite Dress by Boni Ashburn to the class. Use the story as a motivator to discuss student favorites. The teacher should share some of his favorites with students.
Ask students to share their current favorite color. Document student responses by having them create a bar graph of the data. This can be done with a magnetic white board in the classroom and student made magnets.
Provide students with a template of a generic crayon shape. Students decorate the shape using Crayola® Crayons. Once complete, have students glue their decorated crayons onto a magnetic strip. Allow magnets to dry overnight.
Set up the white board into columns, similar to a pictograph or bar graph, and title the chart "Favorite Colors." Note the color represented by each column drawn. Ask each student to come to the white board one at a time to place their crayon magnets in the column that represent their favorite colors.
Once all students have contributed to the graph, step back and ask them what they see. Allow students to notice that by counting the number of crayons in each column, they can determine such things as the class favorite for colors, how many students like each color, etc. Allow the discussion to continue until you feel it has been exhausted.
Ask students to re-state what they have learned from their graph. Write their learning in complete sentences, dictated by the students, on the white board. Have students repeat the sentences orally.
