Start at one number of the equation and hop spaces so you end up on the sum. (For 3 + 2, you start at 3 and jump 2 spaces to land at the sum 5.) Mix it up. Skip, walk, bear crawl or make up your own movement. 4. plus Press the Add button. 5. photo video Take a photo or video of you playing this game. 6. check Press the check to add to your journal. Optional: Have younger children recognize and find numbers. You can use rocks as counters if needed. Expand your number line into two or three-digit numbers for older children or do multiplication and division equations. 👨‍👧 Family Why: Using your whole body while learning, improves memory and attention. This activity increases blood flow and oxygen in the brain and is a fun way to build math fact fluency.
