I am a first grade teacher from Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where I teach children from very poor socioeconomic backgrounds. I recently came across a series of math books that use different candy, such as Twizzlers, M&M's, Hershey Kisses, and others to teach math concepts such as addition and subtraction, patterns, and shapes. What child wouldn't love doing subtraction with chocolate or making shapes with licorice sticks! I would use thise books in whole group math lessons as well as in math centers. These books would provide an exciting alternative to the usual math manipulatives and provide a fun and unforgettable learning opportunity for my students.
