Even though we aren't much into junk food in my house, we certainly do love chocolate. Many nights after dinner, we all share a square of dark chocolate as our post-dinner dessert, if I haven't baked anything.
Last night, after arriving home from Trick or Treating, Sj dumped out her bag full of loot! She's always loved to line up all of her candy and sort them into piles. This year I took the sorting one step further. We placed all the candy into groups and then she recorded the number and type of candy in her math journal. We then turned all the data into a graph!
It was fun to see how many types of candy she received with a total of 152 pieces!
I'd just like to end with, if you aren't that into Halloween, think about the moment. The moment to reach out to others that you may never have the opportunity to meet. A person that may just live a few blocks away, but spends the majority of their time alone. Think about how happy they are when they see our children's smiling and excited faces. How a simple conversation may just be the highlight of their week!
