Next message: Mary Alice Hatchett: "RE: [Channel-talkdata] Session #10 Homework Problem H3"
This year I taught in a integrated preschool classroom and we recorded our
daily weather each morning as a large group. I mainly focused on this activity
for the 1-1 correspondence for my 4-5 year old students; but, after taking the
course I realize how much further I can take this routine activity. I have
been working on a way for the children to record the data on their own weather
graphs and continue to their basic math skills with additional questioning
that would be geared toward the average type of weather for the month (mean), the
median, and the mode. We already do the mode using the terms the type of
weather that occurred the most during the month. Of course, my students would
not be able to figure out what the mean would be, but I could ask them to
predict using their graphs what they believe it to be and then basically figure it
out in front of them for exposure to addition and division. We could also
easily find the median together.
This weather graph activity is actually my work in progress for my project
because it would be used daily and it would be beneficial to their
I loved the course and I know that the information I have gained from it will
be useful in my future teaching endeavors.
