Crazy for Candy Corn...
goblins and ghosts, oh the fear!
Pumpkins, black cats and witches too,
Bobbing for apples and witches brew.
So jump for joy and sound the horn,
relax and have some candy corn! - Author unknown
One of my favorite things about Fall is Candy Corn... I love them. They are pretty, cute, and not to mention yummy. They are so cute that you can find crafts, lessons, recipes, and printables all dealing with Candy Corns. Now, if only they were healthy like carrots. I thought I would share some of my favorite links to candy corn fun!
Check out the book The Candy Corn Contest by Patricia Reilly Giff for some interesting reading as well as exercises in logic. In the book, a student can't stop thinking about his class contest. Whoever can guess the exact number of yellow-and-orange candies in the jar gets to keep them all. The only catch is that each guess requires the student to read a page of a library book.
Use the picture book Julius's Candy Corn in a candy math lesson plan to teach Kindergarten students how to count to ten and solve subtraction problems. Read more:
