• Stepping Stones 

    This idea appeared in the Erikson Early Math Collaborative newsletter.  It is a nice way to integrate math and physical development skills while addressing specific objectives.  This game can easily be adapted for remote or in person learning.  It is a great idea to get kids up and moving instead of just sitting Infront of the screen especially during our long winter where kids may be cooped up inside.

    Create a stepping stone path with sidewalk chalk (outside) or painters’ tape (inside). Children at home can create “stepping stones” with common household items such as paper plates, washcloths, or small pillows. Spin the spinner and have player jump that number of stepping stones. The player who completes the path first wins the game. When partners can’t play together, children can race the teacher or play against a stuffed animal at home.
