Hopscotch Math Drills

My third grader really needs to learn her math drills.  She is an active, creative girl.  Reviewing math facts on a sheet of paper just doesn’t seem to cut it.  However, I can create an activity like this and hit a nerve!

First I wrote out her math facts on a sheet of paper – large and bold so she could see them from a chair while hopscotching.


Then we created a hopscotch sketch for her where she could perform her drills.


As she hopped along, she would recite, “Nine times ________ equals _______”.

My son saw her doing it and decided he wanted to join her!  ~smile~

This is a great summer activity for keeping your children’s brains fresh and for reinforcing those essential math drills that provide a good foundation.

Tomorrow I will share the multiplication lapbook we made.

  1. This is such a great idea, Lisa! I have one who struggles with paper-and-pencil math and this would be the perfect exercise. Blessings!
