Have you ever thought of warming up before you exercise your brain?
Every day in Mathematics Mrs Castle has her students in 3 Blue do a warm up to practise their mental math skills. Last week they were practicing skip counting by threes using hopscotch squares and body movements to reinforce their number skills.
Students had to whisper and hop on one leg for every first and second number, and do star jumps on every third number that they said out loud. They had lots of fun during their ‘warm up’ and after a few minutes became creative and decided to strike a pose for every third number.
