In case you all hadn't noticed, I have quite a cast of characters this year! They are very young, and inadvertently, very funny. Today was FINALLY one of my little girl's birthday: She turned 6 years old today and has reminded me about her birthday every day for the last month (seriously - we've had a countdown! 13 days till my birthday...12...) My little friend is ADHD and it has been interesting keeping her feet down on planet Earth.
So, yesterday, during center time, she decided she needed to create her own center: A tally graph of what kind of cupcake everyone would like - chocolate or vanilla. I kept my eye on her, but she did a really good job! She asked every one (even me!) and her tally marks were spot on!
THEN, as if this wasn't enough authentic learning, she borrowed a piece of paper, and proceeded to make a picture graph! I wish I'd thought to take a picture before she took it home to give to mommy. It was really good! (You can tell what we're studying in class this week, can't you?)
I just love this! Okay, it wasn't the centers I'd planned on her doing, but don't you think she learned a lot from this? So do I! Have a great weekend, all! By the way, the cupcake graphic was from KindergartenWorks - isn't it adorable?
