Have you seen the new mini erasers at the Target Dollar Spot? I’m obsessed with the tacos! I knew right away that I wanted to use them to go along with the book Dragons Love Tacos and create several different math activities for the kids to practice counting with them.
This Free Printable Dragon Tacos Spin and Graph is a fun activity to teach your little learners about graphing. This activity is perfect for math workshop, in small groups, or even as an independent whole group activity to introduce graphing and recording data. It is super easy to get ready!
All you need for each child is:
- a copy of the printable (below)
- a pencil
- a paperclip
- taco mini erasers or a crayon to mark
The students will use a pencil and paperclip to create a makeshift spinner. Put the tip of the pencil in the paperclip, give it a flick, and see where it lands! They always love this.
Once they land on a taco picture, they color or mark a square above that taco picture with an x. Have them play until one column reaches the top. That taco picture is then declared “the winner!”
You can download the Free Printable Dragon Taco Spin and Graph from my Teachers Pay Teachers store below.
For more math fun using our taco mini erasers, we practice counting to twenty with our Dragon Taco Counting Mats.
And practice making ten with our Dragon Taco Ten Frame Task Cards.
And be sure to check out how we used Dragons Love Tacos for our literacy snack read-aloud and grab the free printable wordsearch to go along with the book.
