To tie in our Read Across America celebrations with math, we worked together with the 2H Owls and the 2A Kangaroos to create a picture graph of all the different kinds of stories we like to read:
Friends could choose from four different reading genres: Nonfiction, Realistic Fiction, Fantasy, and Comics (also known as Graphic Novels). Once they chose a genre, they created a book cover of one of their favorite books from that genre:
Fantasy was the most popular choice in all three classrooms, followed by comics, and the same number of students chose realistic fiction and nonfiction stories. We wonder what our results would look like if we asked the whole school??
