Star Wars Math

As I mentioned in earlier posts- May the Fourth was a celebration of EPIC proportions at my school.  The whole school was in the Star Wars spirit and my little classroom was brimming with Star Wars learning.  I remember LOVING Star Wars as a kid and playing a lot of Star Wars at recess.  I wanted my firsties to experience the same magic for at least one day.  I was hard pressed to find Star Wars learning activities and ones that actually were geared for the younger set.  So... I decided to make my own and that task remained on my to do list FOR WEEKS.  Then.... the magic happened during a trip to Target.  Honestly, isn't that where all the teacher magic happens?  I spotted... wait for it... STAR WARS CEREAL!!!!!!!  Are you kidding me?  I had no idea it even existed.  I immediately thought of all the Lucky Charms sorting and Valentine heart sorting activities I have done through the years and I just knew that my kiddos needed to sort Star Wars themed marshmallows.  I came home and made sorting mats for "gathering data" and recording sheets that allowed them to analyze their data--very official, we are.  The kids absolutely had a blast.
