Many of us probably have a stash of candy right about now. Whether it's from trick-or-treating, a harvest party, or well intending grandparents, we have it . . . and we need to find something constructive to do with it.
Have you considered Candy School?
So, the wheels kept turning; I thought up a few ideas and made a few printables. When I told Elijah we would do candy school for two days, his mouth dropped and his eyes bugged. I think he was sold.
I filled up six workboxes this morning with some candy related fun. Here's what Elijah found in his boxes.
fairy tale book & instructions to read Hansel and Gretel
candy graph & candy
"If Peas Could Taste Like Candy" poem for copywork. I left one stanza out (the third) because I couldn't fit all four on the page. Elijah couldn't stop laughing while copying this one.
Hershey Fraction book & a Hershey bar
candy science experiments
After school was over, I let Elijah hang out at Wonka Land— creative fun just waiting to happen.
Tomorrow, I will post Candy School Part 2 along with some additional ideas for you. Here is a little list of books you could include, if you want. I haven't read them all, so please preview before using.
