I just saw the cutest post by Jungle Learners celebrating National Candy Corn Day.  Who knew there was such a thing?  I figured why not highlight it on my blog too.  So just how can you celebrate National Candy Corn day? I can think of ways to use them in math, and of course, there are lots of printables too. In this post, I’ll share ideas you might like to use.
