Math Monday: fractions



This week we started studying about Pennsylvania.  One of the things I learned about it while I was researching the state is Hershey chocolates are from there.



Hello, yummy math time, right?



So, we went through and followed the directions in the book and learned about the different fractions in a chocolate bar. 


It amused the heck out of me to see Batman (I’m kind of assuming this is him, it certainly looks like him, but……) take the directions run with it, and create artwork in his fractions.



It was also amusing to me to watch as the chocolate pieces slowly got smaller and smaller as little kids licked their fingers.


The book was a little long for Princess’ attention span, towards the end she was really staring at the chocolate with complete fascination.  But, overall they did really well.


And then there was some very happy kiddos as they happily devoured lots and lots of chocolate.
