We added with kisses, using a quick little printable I made up.

Thomas rocked this monstrously fun advanced addition matchup. Freebie from Emily Ames on TpT.

Marcus played with the color tablets today too.

The kids learned about symmetry, and I learned that an ipod touch when off makes a lovely makeshift mirror.
Simply Symmetry

Then, they practiced the hundred’s chart by patterning with M&M’s. Yeah, that was a hard sale…

Finally, we observed Sweethearts candies with this awesome printable from 2 Teaching Mommies.

…and had a little science experiment.

In case you were wondering where the valentine heart number cards are from up top… I was inspired by Confessions of a Homeschooler’s Valentine matchup, and decided to make my own heart number cards from 0-10.

    Me thinks we need more candy. For educational purposes only, of course. I’ll pick some up tomorrow, because I’m happy to contribute to the learning experience :) .
