I thought it’d be great fun to have the kids graph candy conversation hearts for Valentine’s math time.
I used a graphing page from a pack at 2 Teaching Mommies.
I bought a big bag of candy conversation hearts and gave each of my kids a handful of hearts.
They sorted them by color and loved reading the messages.
The kids got out their Montessori rugs and loved this graphing activity!
Kate sorted the hearts into colored piles and then placed them on her graphing chart.
Tori and Alex picked the hearts one by one from their cup and immediately placed them on their charts.
I love how they work differently!
Sinéad decided to lie down in the middle of our work. Of course.
Alex was thrilled to get the most orange hearts!
The kids enjoyed eating the extras beyond #10. The girls went further with the math. Alex went off to play.
I wrote the numbers on the board for the girls to copy.
Then I made this little printable so the girls could figure the mean, mode, median and range.
We haven’t even gotten to division yet in our math lessons and the girls were fascinated and loved this lesson.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
