Candy Count!

Learning Activity - Candy Count - I saw the idea for this on http://prekinders.com/ under the Valentines Day theme.Directions - I glued pink, purple, blue, green, yellow and orange paper hearts onto red construction paper (use the same colors as hearts in the Conversation Hearts bag). I put 40 conversation hearts into each child's container. Connor and Lauren sorted the hearts out by color using the paper heart mat. After the Conversation Hearts were sorted, Connor and Lauren counted their groups of Conversation Hearts. I had them write down on the paper hearts how many Conversation Hearts they had in each group. Then they compared the results, telling who had more hearts. I added the writing down how many Conversation Hearts on each paper heart, so they could practice writing their numbers. They had fun sorting their Conversation Hearts - and even more fun eating the Conversation Hearts after they were done! *I had Connor and Lauren wash their hands before sorting the Conversation Hearts* Skills - sorting, colors, counting, one-to-one correspondence, writing numbers, more and less Materials Needed - red construction paper, pink, blue, purple, green, yellow, and orange construction paper cut into heart shapes, glue, pencil, Conversation Hearts
