    We’ve done M & M math and Hershey Bar math before too…A friend of mine had the books. Lots of fun!

    That is a great idea. You are very inspired when it comes to schooling. I use threats, warnings and follow through for math; it seems to work, but not so much fun 😉 .

    I would’ve never gotten past the 1st grade because I’d eat the whole bag, admit that I ate only half and never learn to count because we couldn’t figure what happened to the other half. LOL.

    Congrats on the job, BTW. Sorry it’s late.
