Now that the weather is nice my goal is to do as many outside learning activities as possible.
This is a cheap and easy gross motor number recognition activity.
All you need is some sidewalk chalk and large die (we got ours at the dollar store)
I wrote numbers 1-6 on the sidewalk and made a start line.
Each kid took a turn rolling the die and they had to say out loud what number it was. I would call out a gross motor movement (running, skipping, hop on one leg, bear crawl, crab crawl etc) they had to do that movement to the correct number.
so they roll a 6 they would bear crawl to the number 6
This was really easy for Brooklynn and it was a little over Bodie’s head but it was a great way to practice numbers and introduce Bodie to them.
To make this a little harder you can add a second die so they have to add the numbers together and then do the gross motor movement to the corresponding number.
