Sorting M&Ms

Wildman was home sick for a day and half last week thanks to the second ear infection of his life.  This makes 5 absences from school so far this school year.  I’m now on a first name basis with the school nurse, Brian.  For as excellent as our public schools are I could do without the germs that come with it.

Wildman’s teacher sent home some make-up work on Friday.  One of the assignments involved coloring a worksheet based on recognizing the color sight words and then sorting out mini bags of M&Ms.  She sent home a bag for Cutie Pie too.

Needless to say, the boys wanted to do this work right away!  They worked together to color in all of the color circles correctly.  It was so cute watching Wildman help his little brother color in the correct circle with the correct color.

The boys both loved the sorting part of the assignment.  Wildman did his first and was surprised to discover that his mini bag of M&Ms did not contain the colors brown or red.

Cutie Pie’s bag was a little bit more evenly distributed among the six colors.

The ultimate joy of this assignment came at the end when they got to devour their candies!  I’ll have to remember this fun sorting exercise for later.  I’m sure they’d love to do it again.
