What is magically delicious?

This has been around for many, many years but if your students need more graphing experience this is an easy solution to celebrate St. Patrick's day. I'm not a big fan of all children sticking their hands in the same bowl to do this activity so I have another suggestion that will make it feel special. Have a parent put a handful of cereal in clear treat bags and you can use the topper I have provided to seal off the bag. Each child has their own to use when doing this graphing activity! The graph can be run off on colored paper or stay with the white so they can color in how many of each shape they have in their baggie. Easy and fun during assessment time. This might give you a handy fifteen minutes.They can even compare their data with a partner and I will come up with a recording sheet if I have time... The graph and topper are available as a freebie for kinders and firsties at my shop on TpT.
Please rate it and leave a comment if you think it will make you luckier!

Hi, Fran!

This has absolutely nothing to do with your St. Patrick's Day post; however, I was just wondering if you will be creating a unit for Common Core Unit 5 (Our Big World)? We will begin it the week we come back from spring break (March 26th). I'm just one of your "eager" shoppers. Thank you in advance for replying! :)

Hi Fran,
Thank you for this! It is so much cuter than the one I found. For some reason, life is better when the handouts are cute!!!!!

As always, thank you for sharing! :) I am a little 'relieved' that you shared yours---I hate having to recreate this graph each year to match the new marshmallow shapes. This saves me some time--and time, right now, is very precious indeed.

Thank you Fran!

Thanks Fran. My kiddos LOVE graphing, maybe because it's their teacher's favorite! I have this graph but yours is so much cuter!

I haven't been good at leaving many comments but I want to thank you for being such an inspiration. It's because of your blog that I got brave and recently started my own. In fact, I left you an award on my blog. I would be honored if you would stop by and pick it up and maybe even leave me a note while you're there.

All my best,

Oh, no...I just checked my box of Lucky Charms, and the marshmallows are different. My shamrock is on a hat, the star is a shooting star, and it has a horseshoe. Anyone else have this problem??

I just responded to your comment on my post with my list of stuff to do next week. LOL! When is your Spring Break? Hey, are you going to the national I Teach K conference in Vegas this summer? I am thinking about it. :)

Hugs, Crystal

Fran Kramer said...

Yup... They asked me to present.
Please come. I would adore meeting you friend! My break is in early April(boohoo).

Thank you Fran! I have a dice game I think your Kinders would love called Race to the Rainbow. I would be honored if you came and checked it out!

I actually have A LOT of *freebies* that would be great for your K kiddos. Check my August and September posts. If you do Lips the Fish and Stretchy Snake, I have some *freebies* with them too!

You are a blessing! Thank you for the heart you have for teaching and your kiddos! =)
