**MP3.** Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others

How well do students communicate about their data and decisions that they make based on their data?

**MP7.** Reason abstractly and quantitatively

How well do students interpret and make conclusions about their data?

**MP8.** Look for and express regularities in repeated reasoning.

Suggestions for students who are struggling...

Teacher can use tally marks or pictures to representation the data.

Chair Counting

Students can count half of the chairs in the classroom.

Use cubes to represent chairs

3.1 Do you like ...? Surveys

Teacher Tip; Give students a list of student names or put the names on the smart board. This will allow students to copy the student names.

Counting Jar

Incorporate literacy by having students write a sentence to show the amount.

-Students can write the number word instead of a number.

Counting Eyes

Teacher Tip: Have students write their names on the back of their eyes. This will allow students to easily sort the eyes if they get mix up while in the eye center.

2.3 Boxes, Bottles, and Cans

Teacher Tip: Write a letter home asking parents to send in boxes, bottles, and cans

Portraits

Take photographs of students for the portrait sorting center

**K.CC.1** Count to 100 by ones and by tens.

**K.CC.3** Write numbers from 0 to 20. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0-20 (with 0 representing a count of no objects).

**K.OA.2** Solve addition and subtraction word problems, and add and subtract within 10, e.g., by using objects or drawings to represent the problem.

**K.G.2** Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.

**K.MD.1** Describe measurable attributes of objects, such as length or weight. Describe several measurable attributes of a single object.

Discuss data representations as a class or group. Ask questions such as:

What does this display of data tell you about?

What patterns do you see in the display of data?

Who might be interested in this display of data?

While Today’s Question has been during the entire year, this unit provides more in depth experiences for students to collect, analyze and interpret data.

These activities provide further opportunities for students to count on as they collect data

K.CC.2, K.CC.4 a b c, K.CC.5, K.CC.6 Develop strategies for counting accurately; does order matter?; comparing quantities

K.CC. 2, K.CC.4 a b c, K.CC. 5 Use calendar to keep track of time; develop strategies for counting accurately

K.CC. 2, K.CC.4 a b c, K.CC. 5, K.CC. 6,

K.CC. 7 Collect, count represent, describe, and compare data

Determine what comes next in a generating pattern; describe repeating patterns
