Completing a Glyph for Groundhog's Day, February 2, and Interpreting Data

by Go Figure!

February 2nd is Groundhog Day, and no matter whether he sees his shadow or not, it is always fun for students to do special activities on Groundhog Day. In my Teachers Pay Teachers Store, I feature a Groundhog Day Glyph. Glyphs are really a form of graphing, and students need the practice. In addition, glyphs are an excellent activity for reading and following directions, and they involve problem solving, communication, and data organization.

Valentine's Day is always an exciting time for students and I love it because it gets them to focus on others, rather than on "getting".  In the spirit of this heart-filled day, this favorite math lesson uses conversation hearts to reinforce upper-grade math concepts.
