The After-School Program
On October 22, 2019, Math & Movement hosted an after-school program for 11 students at the Greater Ithaca Activities Center (GIAC). The goal was to increase student performance and understanding of skip counting and multiplication. As a bonus, students gained extra physical activity throughout the day.
Hop To Multiplication
The program started with a pre-test to measure students’ math skills. They then learned two active math movements – basketball and soccer – as a warm-up to learn one-to-one correspondence and skip counting.
Students then practiced skip counting by 3’s on our floor mats to solve multiplication problems. They jumped, hopped, and skipped to fill out a practice worksheet. They worked in pairs as part of a flexible grouping strategy, which improves social communication and improves student confidence.
After having fun learning threes times table, the students then took a follow-up test. Check out how much they improved!
