Read full description of the books:
Personal Reaction: I think this is a very fun and interesting book with great illustrations. It makes math look fun and interesting. And when your not very fond of math, making it look interesting is hard!! I also love the word bubbles for each character and the collage like illustrations. Very cool!
Purpose: Read aloud for students K-3 grades
-entertainment/enjoyment: the book has some really great illustrations that use a lot of different media that will engage the students into the story and the idea of graphs.
-the personification of the animals will make it easier for them to become engaged because it is a different point of view with entertaining "likes and dislikes".
-imaginative: the story obviously has a lot of imagination and thought put into it to make it more engaging for students. The students could come up with their own graphing story to teach other students about the different types of graphs
-the items they are graphing are fun things that the students may be interested in like flowers, rocks, swimsuits, cookies, and animals.
-a different way of looking and learning about the types of graphs
Curriculum: Read aloud for students K-3 grades
-introducing students to graphing (graphing, pie charts, Venn diagrams)
-great for a lesson on grouping items into categories
-introduction to research, graphing, and recording results
-the process of gathering data and creating graphs- "1) think of a question to ask 2)collect data and write it down 3) use real objects and/or art supplies to create a graph, 4) put a title and labels on your graph so that people will know that it is about."
-a fun activity would be for the students to go around the classroom and ask a question, collect data, and create different kinds of graphs to show their findings. Or have the class work in small groups with different objects to make a certain type of graph, then move to a different station to create a new type of graph.
