Graphing Podcasts

This post celebrates my phenomenal ESL Scholars! These kids are native Spanish speakers but have been learning Math in English as part of our Dual Language Program. They are amazing! Not only are they very successful in their Math skills but they can explain their thinking in English. We learned a new app for graphing this week, Haiku Deck. This app allows scholars to take survey results and quickly and easily create a graph. Scholars then layered their graphs into Educations in order to create podcasts that explain their knowledge about graphs and comparing the data illustrated on a graph. We've really been hitting the concepts of 'many more' and 'many less' hard this week as this is a difficult concept for first graders. It is  even more difficult to explain mathematical thinking in a new language. I am so proud of these kids:)
