Candy and Math
>Busy day today. Even though the sun was shining SO bright it was very very cold outside. The kids loved playing with the playdoh and those ( darn) bells. Dillion has found a new love of doing puzzles. Many times through the day you will see him take one off the shelf.
We used cardboard hearts to play the ” Heart Hokey Pokey” and then we found our friends with matching hearts. In small groups today we had a graphing activity with Sweetheart candies. As I sit and do these activities with the kids , I remember it is SO much more than just graphing. In the picture above, I told the little girl to put her pink one ABOVE her other candy. She did…. Not exactly what I meant, but she did know what above means.We talked about more and less and zero . ( These boxes had no white ones.) We also counted the candies and used problem solving . There were blue candies in the box but no space for a blue . What can we do?
