Candy Corn!!!

I know this is crazy...I LOVE CANDY CORN!! I am an addict! It is horrible. Once I start I can't stop. So, I took my addiction and passed it on to my firsties! There are always a few that don't like candy corn but majority of my class loved it. We sorted different types of candy corn and graphed our findings. It is adorable!

Lucky you, I have another Halloween freebie! It is super simple and here are the supplies you need:

Ziploc Bags
Harvest Candy Corn- with a mixture of Indian Corn, regular Candy Corn, and pumpkins
Extra regular Candy Corn
Graphing Sheet- Provided Here

Just give each student a mixture of the candy corn and have fun!

Also, visit the teacher wife to learn how to make some fabulous candy corn art. We created it and it is so cute hanging in our classroom.

Check it out:

Have fun graphing!!

Jack-O-Lantern Glyph for Fun!!

It has been a while since I have had some "free" time to get on here and post. So in the spirit of Halloween I figured I would make a point to get on here...with a freebie. We are doing some Halloween themed math this week and I wanted to share. Today, we did a Jack-O-Lantern Glyph and then practiced doing tallies with a tally chart. We have been trying to do a glyph a month to incorporate these skills (like tallying and graphing). Todays glyph turned out super cute and the kids were so excited about it.

Here are some completed photos:

This was super easy to complete. I did buy the pumpkins pre-cut at the Parent-Teacher store but if you find a good pattern you could use that on orange paper. Click here to get a copy of the glyph guide for yourself.

Also, Click here for the cut-outs needed.

And, one more thing, click here for the tally table or chart that we used.

Now, tomorrow we will be sorting, tallying and graphing candy corn, indian corn, and the pumpkins that come with. I can't wait to share!
