The "Mingle" Math Game

January 26, 2016

 Today in the Butterflies class the students played a game where they walked around the room and "mingled."  When teacher Mary called out a number, they got into groups of that quantity. They then practiced their counting by making sure each group had the correct number of kids, and then skip counted by 3's, 5's, etc. to get the class total.  If there were an odd number of kids that were not in a group, they became the "remainders"  and then given a special task for the next round (like mingling while skipping or quacking like a duck).  Good friendship skills were also practiced as the kids were encouraged to kindly invite children into their groups if they added up to the right number or to help them find another group that needed more kids.  The children loved mixing movement and fun with their math learning!
