A seemingly innocent morning of eating jellybeans while doing math has turned into a FUN day of learning!
We started out by using jellybeans as math manipulatives for addition, word problems and multiplication and then went into a lesson on sorting, categorizing and graphing and finally tied it all back in to the real meaning for Easter…Jesus!
This my friends is the beauty of homeschooling. Freedom and flexibility to learn how and when our children want. Today, they wanted to eat jellybeans. Who knew so much learning could take place while eating jellybeans.
But we couldn’t just keep the fun to ourselves, so I created printables to share with all of you!
These worksheets are not only fun for before Easter, but next week too when you’re wondering what in the world to do with all of that Easter candy!
Below, you will find five pdf printables which you are free to download, print and share with your friends. I only ask that you do not alter them by removing my copyright symbol and name at the bottom.
