SUMMARY: This colorful illustrated book uses construction vehicles to count and maneuver candy pieces around to help the reader count from 1 to 10 and then by 5's up to 100. NOTES: I have loved Jerry Pallotta's alphabet books for years. This was the first in the counting books that I have read. I enjoyed learning about the different construction vehicles in the book but I felt that they distracted me from the counting which was the main focus of the book. However, children (especially boys) may ...more

This book uses the popular candy, Reese's Pieces, to count from one to ten, then from 10-100 by fives. The theme used is a construction site where various construction vehicles are used, such as a crane, tanker truck, cement mixer, scissor lift, road cutter, and backhoe, to move the candy pieces around. I can see using this book during a math lesson where children are learning to count by fives. The story is a bit lengthy so just be sure you give yourself enough time! The end highlights the numb ...more

Reese's Pieces Count By Fives is a great book that introduces numbers 1-10 and 10-100(by 10s). For younger students, this book would be great for a math lesson that introduces numbers 1-10. This book also introduces counting by 10s. This book would go along perfectly with a math lesson for younger grades. The book engages young learners because it uses candy! A teacher could even do an activity where students use candy to count, just like the book. Great book for grades PreK-1st.

Hand out Reese's Pieces to the class (emphasize that they are not to be eaten until after the lesson!), then read this book and have students group their Reese's by fives, tens, twos, twenty-fives, etc. to count the totals that they have. This book gives an opportunity for students to tangibly understand the concept of multiplication and grouping. This could easily springboard into a lesson on division or fractions as well. Great for K-3rd grade~

This book is helpful in helping the students memorize their multiplication tables. Reese's Pieces comes in various colors; borwns, orange, red, and yellow. This book would help teachers guide students that need a visual when multiplying. This book would be useful for students that are in 3rd grade.

* Great way to use fun and yummy manipulatives to learn the skill to count by 5. The only caution I have is the peanut based candy ( perhaps I can substitute it with regular m&m's.)
