Jelly Bean Math . . . How yummy!

Lael and Jaden could hardly wait for math time today . . . because I promised them "Jelly Bean Math"! We had so much fun, and practiced some math skills at the same time -- sorting, counting, comparing numbers to see which was larger or smaller, graphing, adding -- who knew you could learn so much from some jelly beans! (I know I would have enjoyed math much more when I was growing up if my teachers had combined it with candy!)

We thought some pictures would enable you to enjoy our fun time --

Here are the eager students hard at work . . .
Working on their graphs (sorting bags of jelly beans)

The finished graphs . . .

. . . And the proud, jelly bean-filled students!

Learning . . . how sweet it is!
