Today we are a slapping fun Multi-age classroom!! We played Flyswatter Slap. But, we did not slap
I wrote digits on the board from 1-20 (of course scattered across the board to make it more challenging and work on number discrimination). I called two students to the back of the room by me, gave them a flyswatter and a math problem. Today's focus was adding doubles! I quickly stated fact and off they "flew" to the board. WOW were they flying-literally- to the white board to slap the answer! QUICK FEET just like the wings on an insect!
Of course, because we had an odd amount of students, I got to go against someone! CHALLENGE ON! :-) After my opponent was chosen, then they all wanted to give us the problem! What a rush of excitement!! Fun, laughter, practicing math facts, engagement = learning!
