Graphing for Preschool
This game is a really easy way to reinforce basic graphing skills. It’s also a great transition activity from question-of-the-day activities and also pairs nicely with my other graphing activities for preschoolers.
Even my three-year-old enjoyed playing the game. In particular, he loved finding the matching pictures, and it was also a great way to teach him new vocabulary words about fall.
Matching pictures is the first step in developing sorting skills, which is a precursor to teaching graphing, so this fall graphing game is awesome for both toddlers and preschoolers.
You can even add this to your kindergarten math activities.

How to Teach Graphing to Preschoolers
Teaching graphing in preschool has many benefits. Teaching children how to graph at a young age helps them understand how to look for and collect data, identify patterns, and make predictions.
Graphing also gives preschoolers an opportunity to indirectly practice other mathematical and cognitive skills such as estimation, sorting, organizing, counting, classifying, problem solving, and comparing. It also develops spacial awareness.
There is a lot of overlap in sorting skills and graphing. So, to teach preschoolers how to graph — how to organize data — they must first be able to proficiently sort.
Sorting skills include sorting by a single attribute, like color, and then by more attributes. To teach a preschooler how to graph, you teach them how to organize the sorted materials.
Be sure to read this post: The Ultimate Guide to Comparing and Sorting.
Preschool lesson plans in graphing should include a wide range of age-appropriate graphing practice. Preschoolers are capable of learning pictograph, bar graphs, and line graphs, so those should all be included in a Preschool Graphing Unit.
