Next the kids each got a pile of conversation hearts. They had to sort the candy onto the paper they had colored. I always have them say the name of the color, each time they do this.
Next, I had printed up pages for each of them to graph their results. They had to color in the squares along the bottom of the graph. Then, they would grab one candy at a time and line them upwards on the graph, by color. I had them count them as they did this. So, for the purple one that is being placed in that picture, they would be saying "4".
Here is one of the graphs that is all filled in with the conversation hearts.
Next we colored in the graph, according to how many hearts each color had. I wrote in the number for each color. We looked at each others graphs and compared them. Who had the most pink hearts? Who had the least green hearts? etc. Finally, they got to eat the hearts! They always love these sorting and graphing lessons!!
