We created jellybean bar graphs for letter J week.
Each child got a graph with the name of each jellybean color at the bottom and a cup of jellybeans. We colored one square for each jellybean above the appropriate color.
The first day, the kids and I did a graph as a class and we shared the jelly beans. The second day, the kids did their graphs individually.
For the younger class, we all had the same number of each color so that I could help guide them through making the graph. And of course when it was all done we got to eat our math manipulatives!
