Math? Hop to It!
I got to thinking that this could easily be extended to kids of all ages. The youngest kiddos, like mine, should just stick to basic identification. Kids who need a bit more of a challenge, though, could be asked to find sums or differences, or products and quotients. For instance, if you wrote a 6, 10, 12, 16, 18, and 20, you could ask your child to find and jump on:
- the sum of 4 and 2
- the difference between 12 and 2
- the product of 3 times 4
- the quotient of 40 divided by 2, and so on.
You can cater this to kids of all ages and abilities. Again, the possibilities are endless, and kids have a blast because they think it's a game more than anything else. The physical part of running and jumping on the letters and numbers make it more fun than seeing the numbers written on paper and chalkboards. What do you think?
