Hershey's Kisses Addition Book

After reading the book Hershey's Kisses Addition Book, we decided to focus our activities on Hershey kisses. (We especially enjoyed the ones with caramel inside them!)

As part of our Math Investigations activities, the children used kisses to show different ways to represent the number 10. (This activity is usually done with cubes.) The pictures attached show some of the combinations we created.

At our writing center, children made up Hershey Kiss word problems. Later, the word problems were typed up and printed on card stock. The cards were then placed in a math center with a supply of Hershey kisses. Children would go to the center to solve the word problems using the kisses and record their answers on a sheet of paper.
