Dance Party Math Mats are the perfect activity to get your kids up and moving while keeping them actively engaged in their learning. This has quickly become a favorite activity for my little learners. These addition and subtraction mats are a sample of my full unit. Here is how it works. Place the math mats in a plastic sheet protector and place them in a circle around the room. Each student will need to stand at a mat with a dry erase marker. You, the teacher, will play kid friendly music while they dance around their mat. When the music stops, they must solve the problem the teacher calls out on their mat, or create their own for the next person to solve when they move to the next mat. Keep playing for as long as time permits.
