FREE MATH LESSON - “Freebie Reading Grids Poster - You Crawl Before You Walk”

by Down Under Teacher
1st - 4th Grade

I was taught this saying by a student when I taught Grade 6: 

You crawl before you walk.

We use it to help us remember to read the x-axis before the y-axis i.e. when you crawl you are horizontal so you read the horizontal axis first, you are vertical when you walk so you read that second. I thought it was pretty genius and I've been using it ever since. 

I’ve made up 2 posters – one with numbers and one with letters along the x-axis.

I hope you enjoy using it.
