Candy Corn Math

This week I set out a little candy corn math activity for my kids to use in their stations.  Because I have such a sweet tooth, I ate the whole bag of candy corn, so the kids had to settle on the laminated cardstock version instead ;)

Each candy corn is programmed with either an addition or subtraction problem.  I cut off the bottom {yellow} portion of the candy corn and left the rest intact.  The kids have to match the bottom {sum/difference} to the top {number sentence}.  We’ve been working on vertical addition & subtraction, so this is a perfect reinforcement of this concept!  The kids love it!  They just wish it was the real deal :)candycornmath
