# Daily Data Ideas!

This year I am excited to have some fresh ideas that will bump up the engagement and relevancy of daily data! Over the years I have used magnetic student numbers for all sorts of convenient things like behavior, jobs, VIP, youknowthedrill…

But now I am going to change things up! I am excited to share some new ideas with you.

This is a new way for me to help my students remember and understand odd and even.

Rather than giving students a student number based on their names or alphabetical order, I am going to give students their numbers by gender. Boys odd girls even (doesn’t matter which you choose)

Now I can say odds line up and see my boys. Or evens may go back to the table first and see my girls. When we need to break into two lines at a moment’s notice, I can say odds and evens! Ok, I guess I could always do this, but now it makes it easy to see if they are getting it right 😉 This is just one more way for my students to see a pattern, then relate and apply it to life. #nailedit

We will use these numbers for a daily check in. It could be attendance time or just a math meeting time in your day.

Now we are ready to take our data and analyze it. At the start of the year, we work on tally marks so here I show how we can analyze using tallies.

Class data can be analyzed in so many ways. We just need to take our focus skills and infuse them into the analyzing! Tally marks, graphing, greater than less than, How many more? How many less? You name it!

Because the numbers are odd and even, you can layer on more than one skill when analyzing your daily data! #forthewin #score

Integrate more by making it a part of your lesson altogether. Here’s an idea for a journal prompt. Students see the box with the number 1, then draw and write the rest in their journal.

So here’s what you need to get started.

If you would like the odds and evens you can get them here.

Do you have a data wall? Or more ideas? I would love to know!

Love this so much! I have a space for question of the day but I like the way you are using the Venn instead with it and I like being able to call two lines, or half the class. I LOVE all that is in the freebie and I am going to use so much of it. I hate to even ask, but is there any chance you might be able to do those numbers for odd/even to 30? I am afraid I will need it this year. I would be happy to pay for it in TPT. Thanks for all you do!

Oh Robyn, I just had a moment of silence for you over here. 🙁 I will get you those numbers.

THANK YOU!!

Is there anyway I could get up to 30 as well? I am willing to pay for them! Thanks for sharing all you do in your classroom, I have been enjoying reading up on how you do things and have gotten really excited for my year to start!

Alright girl I updated the file!

This is such a great post!! So many ideas.

Chelsea I hope you have a great year! Thank you for always commenting! 🙂

Wow! Such amazing ideas. I wish I could be a fly on the wall in your room, Reagan.

That is so sweet Courtney! Thanks for commenting!

I love this! I already downloaded the numbers and everything, thank you! Unfortunately, I too, will need the numbers up to 30. 🙁 So many sweet little firsties in one room. 🙁

I updated for you!

WOW! I am amazed every time I read your blog! WOW! Thank your for your ideas, inspiration and motivation!

Thank you Kaitlin!

I am moving to first grade this year and I totally love the number bonds! I am off to grab some pool noodles and a hula hoop! Great post Reagan:)

☮Monica

The Schroeder PageLove your ideas. I already did numbers in two different colors but just to separate boys/girls. This year will use your wonderful ideas. Thanks for sharing!

These ideas are all so fun! Love working doing data with the kiddos!! Using the even and odd numbers in that manner seems likes a great way to reinforce the concept of even and odd numbers!! Thanks for sharing the numbers…we're heading over to grab them!

First Grade BuddiesYour site is amazing. Where can I find the numbers?

Love the number bond! How did you make it, did you cut the noodles or the hula hoop?

Hi Reagan!

Thanks so much for this post. I love how simple you make it to make data meaningful to our students. I can't wait to adapt these ideas to 3rd grade.

You are BRILLIANT! I went to the dollar store and made my own today!! Thank you for sharing your brilliance. I seriously don't know how I would teach math without you. I heart you!! 🙂

These are such great ideas that I think I can use for 2nd grade too! Thank you!

Would you please explain the Hula Number Bond? Did you split the pool noodles?

Thanks,

Susan [email protected]

would love to know how you did the Hula Hoop. Do you cut the hula hoop or the noodles? Do you change the number daily by the number on the calendar or do you just pick a number? Thanks

Any way you can switch the numbers and make the even numbers blue and the odd pink and go up to 30? Thanks

I have just printed and laminated these! I'm so excited to be back teaching grade one after 11 years! Thank you so much for these great ideas and products.

I love your blog! I can't wait to use daily data in my classroom for this upcoming school year. Do you possibly have a list of questions that you use each day? Thank you so much! Have a great day! 🙂

Love all of your posts! I am using most in my third grade classroom!!

4 – 9 does not equal 5. ???

9 – 4 does

How do I go by getting these numbers. I would love to use this in my classroom
