I have actually found time this summer to begin working on remaking some of my first products that I created. Hopefully, they will look better. After looking through my TpT store, I was embarassed about how some of my products looked. I had created them with Word instead of Powerpoint. So I decided to recreate them in Powerpoint. I have finished my first product makeover. It is the featured product in my store and a freebie, so I thought I should begin with that one.
It is a graphing activity. The students graph their favorite type of apple. I realize that graphing isn't in the Common Core standards for kindergarten. However, my students take the MAP test from NWEA. I was surprised how many questions about graphing that there were on that test. I don't believe in teaching to the test, but if I can have my students do some activities that help them to do better, I try to do that. Besides, when they are graphing they are still counting with one-to-one correspondence, writing numbers and telling more than and less than. All of those things are objectives that I am supposed to be teaching. So by using graphing in my classroom, I am getting a two-for-one deal. (Kinda like shopping at Kohl's)
Here is the freebie if you would like to get it for your classroom:

I hope you like it and can use it in your classroom. Be sure to watch for my more updates to my product.
