Mrs. Adkins class enjoys a yummy math lesson. Sorting objects by size and shape is fun especially when you get to eat the lesson when you are finished!

Grade 3 Students were involved for approximately 2 hours with activities which involved a small bag of M & M's for each student. Everyone remained on task and involved for the entire time. There were no discipline problems during this activity.
Jeremy Horsey: I learned to put the Teddy Grahams into groups. I had to sort them by hands up and hands down. Then, I had to sort them by chocolate and honey flavor. I had a good time.
Trenisha Johnson: We sorted the Teddy Grahams into two groups. Then, we counted them and put them into four different groups. We made a Venn Diagram and told a story about each group. I liked this activity.
Ebony Chandler: Today we made a bar graph of the M&M candies. Next we made a bar graph to show how many of each color we had. We did problems with "greater than", "less than" and "equal to." We ate four of them and then we counted them into piles of four to see how many piles we had and how many were left over. We took the rest of the candy home with us. We had a lot of fun.
