Our fall graphing printable is the perfect activity to introduce your child to important graphing skills.
With beautiful fall pictures, this printable not only teaches data representation but also works fine motor skills.
Graphing is an essential skill for children to learn, as it helps them understand how to organize and interpret data. Preschoolers will develop their ability to count and compare quantities, as well as learn basic math concepts such as more and less.
This activity also promotes critical thinking skills as your child analyzes the data they have graphed.
Activities like this one are just one of many creative and fun math activities we use in preschool.
What is Graphing?
Graphing skills are essential for children as they provide a visual representation of data.
This allows them to understand information in a more concrete way, rather than just relying on numbers or words.
At its core, graphing is all about organizing information and making it easier to see patterns and relationships. Preschoolers can learn that a graph is like a picture that represents information.
How to Teach Students Graphing Skills
Like anything in preschool, having the right resources for teaching is critical to your teaching success. The best way teach students graphing skills is by following thoughtful, developmentally appropriate lessons that are sequential in skill progression.
Graphing Skill for Preschoolers
While graphing data can certainly be very complex, for preschoolers, we are looking to teach the following skills:
- sorting & comparing
- identifying & predicating patterns
- data collection
- organization of data
- interpretation of data
This is just an example of the kind of the graphing activities for preschoolers that are included in our Daily Lessons in Preschool Graphing Lesson Plans. We also love to pair this graphing activity with our fall counting puzzles.
Fall Graphing Printables
This fall graphing printable is designed specifically for preschoolers and introduces them to basic graphing concepts in a fun and interactive way. With colorful fall images and simple instructions, your child will be engaged while developing their graphing skills.
This printable also allows for flexibility, as you can choose the level of difficulty based on your child’s abilities. You can start with simpler graphs and progress to more complex ones as their skills improve.
This fall freebie include four graphing worksheets that feature beautiful watercolor fall imagery. Two worksheets feature graphing up to five, while the other is graphing up to ten.
Since this is a graphing activity, you’ll need a set of counters to act as markers while building the graph. We love these fall themed counters.
The Set Up
Set up couldn’t be easier! Just print and teach!
Set the graphing worksheets out next to a small bowl of fall manipulatives, like those listed above. Then, invite your preschoolers to join you in some graphing fun!
How to Use Graphing Worksheets
You’ll want to walk your preschoolers through how to use these worksheets before allowing them to work independently.
- Identify the images on the graph.
- Read the numbers on the left side of the graph.
- Look at the group of fall pictures at the top of the graph (or on the right side of the graph is using the graphing to ten worksheet).
- Choose a picture and count how many.
- Then graph the corresponding number.
Here are some helpful tips in teaching student how to graph using these fall worksheets:
- Place a counter over each picture as it is being graphed, so that nothing gets graphed twice.
- Put them in a dry erase sleeve and allow preschoolers to mark off which pictures have already been graphed.
- Print these in grayscale and allow children to use crayons to mark of the pictures are they are graphed. They can color in the squares, too.
If you adore the clipart used in these graphing pages, then you’ll love our fall pattern cards! They feature over eight pages of patterning cards in fall florals!

Fall Graphing for Kindergarten
The kindergarten level usually starts with simple bar graphs or pictographs, where children can easily count and compare quantities.
Then the focus might shift to familiarizing children with different types of graphs. This can include bar graphs, where data is represented using vertical or horizontal bars; pie charts, which show how a whole is divided into parts; and pictographs, which use pictures to represent information.
