Math & Movement
Have your students start at START HERE. Have them hop around the mat on the blue multiples of five while they say the numbers out loud. As the student hops on each number, encourage them to simultaneously say the number name. If the counting gets ahead of the number the student is jumping on, encourage them to go back and start over.
Stepping (or jumping) on the number and saying the number name simultaneously is evidence of a child’s understanding of one-to-one correspondence, which is essential to all mathematical processes. Be sure your student’s hopping is in sync with his/her saying the number!
