Here is some really fun Elementary Math Fun – Sorting and Calculating Jellybeans. Implementing holidays and seasons into the educational environment is a great way to have little kiddos engaged and excited. Using candies as manipulates is a sure thing!
Here is the link for the activity page…free of course!
One way to use it is to sort a handful by color, count and calculate.
Another way to use the fun sheet would be for simple counting.
Depending on the age/grade of the kids, you can add up a whole bag with tally marks to figure out how many there are total. This is great for counting by 5’s too.
Other great way to use jellybeans for learning are estimating, sequencing, patterns and of course…decorating!
Happy Learning (and eating too),
