How should I be preparing a line plot at 2nd grade? I have not seen line plots introduced at this level prior to this. But since the Common Core Standards they are now introducing line plots at the 2nd grade level.
While challenging for readers at this level...the positive note is that maybe they’ll be really familiar with them by the time they reach 3rd grade and see them on a test!
Because this is for 2nd grade, the new Tactile Graphics Guidelines state that it should be shown as a graphic...meaning that the axis line, coordinate markers and line segments should be raised tactile lines instead of the number line braille symbols. The “X”s shown in print will be replaced with the braille full cell and a transcriber’s note needs to be included explaining that change. I’ve provided an example of a line plot below showing how it would be presented in a K-3rd grade situation and then again in a 4th grade and up situation.
