Introduction to Coordinate Graphing

Introduction to Coordinate Graphing
Introduce elementary students to coordinate graphing through seasonal coloring activities. The fall Jack-O-Lantern activity requires students to use the grid code and crayons or markers to create a jack-o-lantern on a blank 9x9 grid. The use of letters on the horizontal axis and numbers on the vertical axis introduces young students to coordinate pairs without the confusion of the standard (h,v) format. Notice that it is important that elementary students become accustomed to listing the horizontal coordinate first as this will transfer to the Cartesian coordinates they will use in later grades.

I have been trying to get ready to take on the new Common Core standards. The math series we use now doesn't align to the new standards, even though they pretend they do. The maker of our series sent us a little packet on how to align to common core, but after looking through it I think they're full of it.
