Guided Reading



Moving on from our tally work yesterday, we are going to look at pictograms. 


After we have counted out items using a tally, we can then put this into a different form called a pictogram. 

This shows us all the information in one place so that it is nice and easy to read. Have a look at the pictogram below. This shows us how many children chose each fruit. Can you answer the questions?



How many people chose orange? 

How many people chose banana? 

How many people chose pear? 

Which was the most popular fruit? 

Which was the least popular fruit? 

How many more people chose pear than apple? 



This pictogram is a little different. Can you spot the difference?



Sometimes a pictogram can show more than 1 person/item per picture. 

On this pictogram, each picture means 2 items. 

So, for banana.  There are 5 bananas and each picture means 2 people. This means that 10 people picked banana. 

2+2+2+2+2 = 10            or         5 lots of 2 = 10     (5x2=10). 


Can you answer these questions?



What do you think happens when a picture is cut in half? 

How many would this be for? 




If each picture makes 2:

3 whole rabbits = 6    


1 half rabbit (half of 2 is 1) = 1

so 6 + 1 = 7 people chose rabbit


Have a go at this pictogram and the questions below: 

Now you know how a pictogram works, use the information you collected yesterday on your tally and put these into your own pictogram. 


Will you use 1 picture per item or 2 pictures per item?
