Hi there, after two weeks of not thinking about school, my brain is now in sunday evening mode; PLANNING!!

introducing my new topic ' animals,' tomorrow and beginning with looking at our pets. I thought it wuld be nice to make a class pictogram about most popular pet??? I have a class of Y1/YR; how is it best to differenentiate pictograms at this level? do I need to? thought we would do it as a whole class then maybe my more able could find out the most popular pet in another class?????would a sorting activity be better for my younger ones???? e.g. sorting animals in a tray with 2, 4, 6 legs????

has anyone got a pictogram to share or best ideas at this late stage in the evening!!!!

 

Cheers guys!!

You could do a whole class R/Y1 pictogram of favourite pets and differentiate by asking the Y1 questions like how many people have a cat? do more people have cats than have dogs? while keeping receptions questions simpler such as what pet do most/least people have?

I think the sorting activity would be fine if you have plenty of model animals for them to use and the legs are clearly visible. I did it once with a model of a dog lying down and child was convinced it only had 3 legs :o

cheers for that, I think I will do it as a whole class and then possibly ask my Year ones to go and do a pet survey with children in next class. just thinking not sure if I have lots of animals we could sort but will check in the morning. if not we could sort by colour I guess, think i have some coloured animal counters somewhere!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

thanks for your reply!!!
