Musical Math happens to be one of my class’s favorite ways to practice what they have been working on! This musical math addition is for practicing forms of 3 digit numbers, expanded form, written form, and standard form.
Here is how we play it. Each student gets a page, I have included 4 different pages. They put their name on the paper and place a sharpened pencil and eraser next to it on their desk. Then they stand up and push in their chairs. When I see that everyone is standing, I know it is time to begin. Students leave all materials on their desk. I start some music, usually Kids Bop, and then kids dance around the room. Make sure you have discussed your rules for dancing before you begin. When the music stops, they sit down at a desk close to them and complete one of the boxes and write their initials in the circle. Then again, they stand and push in their chair to let me know they are ready to go again. We continue this way until the time I have allotted is up. Then they all return to their own desks, grab out a red pen/pencil and correct any mistakes as well as finish any that are not complete. They love feeling like teachers with their red pens! These worksheets can also be used as daily work without playing the game.
