Jelly Bean Math

With the Easter Holidays just around the corner, I wanted to put a little sweet twist to our usual number grid exercise! We like to visit the dollar store for some inexpensive teaching props. And that is where we got these cute little spring paper baskets. I filled them up with some jelly beans and made a new looking math grid. 

I wrote numbers 1-10 on top of the paper (1-5 for the little ones) and drew some circles under it (10 circle under each number).

The kids then had to fill the empty circles with the right number of jelly beans!

They had lots of fun completing this exercise and what a motivation when they knew they can have a treat after they finish!!!
