The Math Workout!
Tired of boring math drills? Do your students need a brain break? Try a Math Workout! Math Workout! combines skills practice and movement.
Current brain-based research shows that students need to move about every 20 minutes. Movement helps connect both sides of the brain, enhances learning, refocuses the brain, improves academic performance, and increases cognition.
Students intuitively know when they need a break. Math Workout combines skills practice with physical activity and 21st century interaction.
I use Math Workout as a review, skill practice, regular homework or as a learning center activity.
When my students see a Math Workout assignment, a hearty cheer rings through our room. My class loves doing Math Workout! I hope yours will too! Have fun and get moving!
