Dreaded math practice… is it a source of stress, anxiety and frustration for some of your students? Replace some of the fear with a few fun, active ways to mix up fluency practice and apply math concepts to real-world scenarios.
1. GoNoodle Plus: Mega Math Marathon (4 minutes)
Start your lesson with some movement while practicing math fluency! Students run a virtual marathon while answering grade-specific mental math questions designed to encourage automaticity in core concepts.
2. Go With The Pro (3-5 minutes)
Apply math to real-world scenarios by looking at the units of measure in the Track & Field races, convert metric measurements to imperial measurements, or add/subtract distances. Plus, burn a little energy before settling back into your lesson.
3. GoNoodle Plus: Freeze It (1 minute)
Looking for quick practice on addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division? Choose one of the math categories in Freeze It for a one-minute transition break that keeps kids in a math mindset.
5. Getcha Money Right (2-5 minutes)
Counting money will never be boring with Blazer Fresh! Use this video as an intro to you money unit to set the stage for an engaging lesson.
BONUS: After your video, use your class’s progress bar to tie real world math concepts to GoNoodle. How many videos do you need to get to the next level? If you’ve leveled up 3 times and have 4 videos to go to the next level, how many GoNoodle videos have you played total? If you’ve played 5 of 15 videos, what are some other ways to represent that fraction?
