I was at Sam’s Club today and ran across these fruit heart shaped snacks (also available at Amazon by clicking here)…
If you have followed Teaching Heart for a bit, you know I love to spice up learning with food. Keeps the kiddos interested and excited! Plus they work so hard, it’s nice to have a treat every once in a while. I know, I know, some of you cannot use food at school to foster learning. I have on my sad face for you! Sorry! I have plenty more ideas on my V-day theme page for you to use. Click here and see!!!
For those that can use a treat here and there, here’s a free activity for you. It’s funny, I have made so many of these over the years for the different seasons and/or fruit themed snacks that I had to spend 40 minutes searching my site and files to make sure I was not recreating a heart shaped fruit snack activity that I have already done. LOL!!! I have been at this for over 10 years now and it’s amazing what I forget!
So I have two activities… one for Prek, K, and First. It’s a simple sort and count sheet.
I have one for the more advanced math students – Grades 1, 2, and 3. They will need to create a graph, read it, and answer questions about it. Then, they are asked to look at a friend’s graph and tally their friend’s results, and finally finish up by comparing the two results! Wowza… That’s a lot of learning in a little bag of snacks.
Below are pictures of the two sheets!!!
