M&M Math

I found this book at the library last week and knew it would be perfect for introducing math type things to Josie.

I was right.

Chocolate and crayons are two of our favorite C's around here!

I Googled M&M Graphs and came up with this baby that was just what I was looking for:

Very basic but covers what I needed.

Josie loved sorting.

She did not love waiting to eat them while we did the activities in the book.

We made it 1/2 way through the book and then gave up the addition stuff and just did our graph so she could eat them.

Cute! Natey would have been stealing them any time I turned my head!

Kinda tough to do addition with m & m's......subtraction, not a problem! Haha

Love this idea! We actually have this book but I've been to afraid to go out and buy the M&Ms the bag would be gone by the end of the day! :)

I also wanted to pass along this blog. I'm not sure if you have seen it but the lady who writes the blog is a preschool teacher and she writes about what they do in class. She has a few science projects as well. I was thinking of doing this cheerio bird feeder with sophia.

I hope you are having a nice week!

Great idea! We have this book...somewhere. I haven't even thought about using it for school stuff! Duh!

:-) We had the same problem with marshmallow hearts, she just wanted to eat them...yummy edible projects are just too tempting for preschoolers!
