Help preschoolers learn to recognize their names with these graphing activities. The activity you choose to use will depend on the age and readiness of your students.
When participating in any type of graphing activity, always make sure your students are involved in the process and once the graph is completed, ask the children questions about the graph. Some examples are shown below. These graphing activities are all shown as floor activities but they can certainly be done on large chart paper or in other formats.
