Articles. Best Children's Books about Graphing for K - Gr. 4. Creating Bar Graphs. One way to stimulate young minds is by creating and displaying information in chart and graph form.

Creating Bar Graphs

By creating simple bar or line graphs, children learn to ask questions and gather information about themselves and their surroundings. They also learn to sort and organize objects based on information. Last, young children can represent this information using real objects, pictures, and graphs. Bar graphs are simple graphs in which the height of each bar provides information. Bar graphs use a few vocabulary words that help us understand the information in the graph. Young children will love to create graphs based on all sorts of information. As an alternative to paper-based graphs, have children use a large sheet of paper. Once a graph is created, ask your child to "read" the graph. Connecticut State Library. Booktalks. Purple Heart, by Patricia McCormick. Matt wakes up in a hospital bed in Iraq.

Purple Heart, by Patricia McCormick

He remembers being on patrol, and he remembers an explosion, but he is blurry about what befell Ali, an orphaned Iraqi boy who had befriended him. In the hospital he can’t remember what day of the week it is, forgets words like “trash,” and gets headaches that are a “bolt of pain.” The medical staff tell him he has TBI (a Traumatic Brain Injury). Usually mild cases get better on their own, and he’ll be back with his patrol in a few days. Matt struggles to remember what happened, but at the same time is terrified to recall, in case he remembers the unthinkable – that he purposely shot a child. 2013 Nominations: Elementary/Middle-Grade Speculative Fiction.
