Circle Game (Joni Mitchell)

As part of our series on homeschooling around town, we decided to visit the local doughnut shoppe....otherwise referred to by my kids as "the mothership."  The Krispy Kreme in Winston-Salem is the original store...and it's one of our favorite sweet treats!

In addition to being super yummy (and just terrible for you!), doughnuts are a great way to get some living math into your school day.

Elementary Math

Upper elementary / middle schoolers
  • Take the multiplication a step further, with bigger numbers
  • Work further with fractions (if each person gets 2 1/2 doughnuts, how many do we need?)
  • Work on estimating and multiplying

High Schoolers
