Candy Corn Connection

Hello Everyone!
Great week at school this week!  We worked hard on place value and expanded notation in math. This time of year I like to bring in the fun fall inspired math manipulatives...This week? Candy Corn!  We worked on the best way to count a large quantity of items and discovered that if we group things by tens and then by ones, it was a faster way to count! That led us to experimenting with expanded notation and the composing and decomposing of two digit numbers. We ended the week with a fun, quick little candy corn math craft connection. Take a peek!

Joyfully!
