Max's Math Adventure

 Play Audio Ruthie and I went to see Pop – The guy who runs the candy shop. Pop cried, “Counting candy takes so long! Can you tell me what I’m doing wrong?” A SWEET STORY Play Audio We asked Pop, "Would you mind If we guess how many of each kind?" Ruthie and I knew we could guess And help Pop out of his terrible mess. Pop said, "By all means! Let's start with the jelly beans." Ruth said, "There are ABOUT 100 on a plate." Pop said, "Wow, that's really great!" "How many lollipops in the dish?" "Pop," we said, "we'll grant your wish." We guessed that there were ABOUT 50. "Wow!" said Pop. "That's really nifty!" Then we looked at the big glass jars Filled up high with chocolate bars. Those jars were high beyond my reach, But ABOUT 30 bars fit in each! Ruthie and I got the job done Without counting every one. Pop thanked us for being handy By giving us a piece of candy.
