Hot Cocoa Math

 I want to share with you part of my Winter Wonderland Math and Language Arts Unit that has a section all about hot cocoa!




It's fun any time you can make math hands on and exciting for the students.  The kids had a wonderful time using marshmallows as math manipulatives.  We are studying numbers 11-20.  The students made a mug out of construction paper and were allowed to glue down marshmallows to display any number between 11-15.


We made a hot chocolate craftivity to practice counting!




After we made our hot chocolate craft, we glued down some marshmallows.




The students counted the marsmallows in their chocolate and wrote the number on the line!






The next part of our lesson, we used our 5 senses to taste and investigate hot chocolate.  After we tasted our cocoa, we graphed our opinion if we liked the taste or not.









This chapter we are learning to count to 20 using 10 Frames.  I decided to use the previous cocoa mugs, to make a center station practicing showing sets of numbers 11-20.  The students chose a mat, and then placed marshmallows in the 10 frame to show the number on the mug.

I try to post the objective and standards on each bulletin board, so parents and administration know what we are working on in class.  Here is what is posted around this board:

Hot Cocoa Math
Objective:  In math, we are focusing on numbers 11-15.  We are practicing counting and writing these numbers.  The students were able to choose how many (between 11-15) marshmallows that they wanted to glue onto their cup of hot cocoa.  We also used our sense of taste to take a sip of hot cocoa to see if we liked it.  Then we graphed if we did or did not like the taste of hot cocoa.  The following standards were addressed:

  22. 进行美国论文代写的建议
    阅读时,您会在笔记本上写下有用的单词和定义,好的短语和复杂的语法结构,随着时间的推移,可以形成一个个人字典。这是一个非常有用的资源,当您美国论文代写https://usa.liuxuesavior.com/的时候,您可以不断的巩固您所学到的东西。要是您有一篇论文要提交给一个特刊或感兴趣的出版商的话,您必须阅读它的最新出版物,不要忽视出版商的官方网站和作者指南。同样重要的是出版商要求的提交方法和评估方法。泛读可以训练您的英语思维,这是一项宝贵的技能,在学习英语写作中也可以得到加强。挺多学术或科学论文都是用另一种语言构思、设计和撰写的,然后翻译成英语,这当然是可行的。

  23. 疫情期间网上上课有什么利弊?
    2020年挺特别。突然肺炎疫情已经改变了我们的生活。为了确保student‘s安全,教育局发布了推迟开学的通知,但不学习是不可能的。为了应对新型冠状病毒感染,挺多学校开始采用代修网课https://ca.liuxuesavior.com/wang-ke-dai-xiu/的模式。那么,我们为何要在疫情期间参加网络课程呢? 疫情的时候,online上课有什么利弊?一些家长和孩子觉得网上课后网上学习很好,不仅提高了学习,也丰富了假期生活。这部分家长认为网络课程肯定是未来的趋势,考研和各种技能培训的网络课程已经相当成熟,也看好未来义务教育课程的网络教育。家长觉得online教学好,老师优秀,比补习班好,还能减少接送孩子的次数,真的有挺多好处。
