Reading, Jumping Jacks, and Multiples-- It's the Morning Meeting Activity
Using the big wooden dice made by a fourth-grader from long ago, the kids worked with a partner to read parts from their books and do jumping jacks based on the number rolled. Once the number showed up again, it was to time do the math of counting in multiples or practicing their multiplication. They got in lots of jumping jacks. One group ended up getting four-- 7 times!!
They said when we came back together in a circle that they really like talking about books that they had been reading and getting to socialize this way. I reminded them that socializing isn't only with computer games. There were quite a few lightbulbs!!
