Hey everyone! I hope you are all well and weathering our current situation. I am continuing to develop ways to bring math and movement together both indoors and outdoors. If you are a member of the Math on the Move Book Group or the group Moving Patterns Game Support on Facebook you will have seen some of my posts about how the game is really the first step to learning about working with math and moving bodies at the same time.
What I noticed during the game pilot at the Boys & Girls Club is that once kids get the hang of the footwork they can basically figure out how the game works. It’s at this point that they start to take ownership of the game. I won’t be able to be back in real-life classrooms for a while but I know that the current supports in place (links above) will be a good proxy as we move forward. If you haven’t yet signed up for the FREE Moving Patterns Game Starter Kit why not try it out?
