The Perfect Arithmetic Lesson! Ha, Ha, Ha! … Counting the Candy! I know it’s Halloween and how can I take away all the fun! But, imagine all that candy that just might be accumulated at the end of the day!
Do you remember emptying your bag of goodies after you got home from trick or treating? I do. We’d sort it and make piles of mini-chocolate candy bars, boxes of Dots and Good n’ Plenty and count them. Somehow, my brother always got more than I did!! But, it could be a good way to make math really fun.
It’s funny. Ryan doesn’t even like candy. Maybe they can donate un-opened wrapped candy to a children’s hospital nearby, or maybe there’s a shelter where families might appreciate it. Count how much you can give away, that could be a good idea.
I hope Halloween is lots of fun this year and I can’t wait to see the photo of Chloe Zeldin, who I hear read KIDFUN the other day and became a Mummy! Yeah!
