This is the Way We Go to School

written by Edith Baer, illustrated by Steve Bjorkman

Each student puts their name on a pattern that represents the way by which they most often come to school. We used a bus pattern for those who rode the school bus, a car for those whose parents drove them to school, a bicycle for those who rode their bicycles, and a footprint for those who walked. These were displayed on a bulletin board in appropriate labeled columns and, after discussion and with direction, each student used 1" graph paper and different color crayons to make their own transportation graph from the information.
