Candy Sorting

Since both boys had fevers the week of Halloween, we were all stuck at home. I decided we needed a little structure. I grabbed our (sizable) bag of candy and a couple of clipboards and we did some Candy Math.

First, we sorted the candy by color.

Next we grouped it into piles of 10 pieces and counted it up. This is something Matthew has been doing at school, so I figured it would be good practice. We had over 170 pieces. Yikes.

We may  have sampled a few pieces along the way…..

Then we sorted through to see if we could find one piece of candy for every letter of the alphabet.

The first part of the alphabet looked pretty good,

but the end was kind of sad.

The boys did not seem as disappointed by this as I was.

I can’t imagine why.
