Jelly Bean Math

To celebrate the letter J, we sorted, counted, made predicitons about more or less, and identified which colors we had more or less of. Each table group was given a large bag of jelly beans and each student a 20 frame mat, and a recording sheet. They sorted the jelly beans by color, used the 20 frame mat to count the number of each color they had and wrote that number beside the corresponding color word. We have been learning how to use the 20 frame to count by 5's and on from 10 and 15. This was a perfect engaging activity for them to practice these skills in a fun way.
