Grab this free Jelly Bean Math Graphing printable! It’s a great way to use some hands-on manipulatives (jelly beans) to practice math skills!
I love to incorporate candy when I can! Here’s some free jelly bean math activities for graphing, sorting, and tallying! (Download information is all the way at the bottom of this post). Or if you’re a member of Simply Kinder +, you can download it INSTANTLY here!
I provided with colors and without because last year I had to white out colors when I could not find the exact colors on the freebie I used! So frustrating to have to search for jelly bean bags with specific colors! This download includes three activities: graphing, sorting, and tallying.
This activity goes well with:
One other fun thing I like to do is give the kids their beans in plastic eggs! Sometimes I even hide them in the classroom. It really is a management thing because instead of passing them out or putting them in bags I have them ready to go when the lesson starts in eggs! =) (Gotta find ways to keep the fun right!)
Download also comes with a parent letter to get donations of jelly beans from your students (if you are doing with your class!)
I also came up with another fun idea that you can surely do with these materials. Number the eggs, fill them with a certain number of jelly beans, and have the students find and record how many jelly beans are in each egg. So egg #1 has 13 beans. Egg #2 has 16 beans. Then have the students put them back where they found them so others can find them. I did this activity just on our numbered spelling paper!
Kids LOVE Jelly Bean Math!
