Fun with Math at Lunch


It's Tuesday, and I love linking up with Sue for The Hip Homeschool Hop. Check out how other homeschoolers are doing this week by clicking her button above!

Yesterday my children were apparently bored with my offering of a peanutbutter and honey sandwich, yogurt and fruit for lunch. I had to hop on the phone as it was approaching lunchtime, and when I got off (about 20 minutes later) they had come up with this:

I was proud of her spelling, but notice she couldn't spell "Koolaid" correctly - probably because we have it on very rare occasions.
