We have been spending a lot of time outdoors lately trying to some energy out after the big kids are in school all day. Outdoors is also a great place to do some homework practice. While the big kids are practicing their math facts and spelling words my preschooler has been having fun with numbers!

To set up the game I drew a line down the sidewalk with chalk and then marked off the numbers from 0 to 25. At first my preschooler practiced walking the line and counting the numbers.

When she got bored with that I called out numbers and she ran to find them. It’s a good way to practice those tricky teens!

Kids that can easily identify numbers can start to work on addition by counting on from a number. You can call out a number and then have them add another number to it by walking that many steps up the number line. This is a fun one for kindergartners who are beginning to combine and subtract numbers.

We are having so much fun with the **Move and Learn series**! See what the other Move and Learn bloggers have been up to and visit our Move and Learn Pinterest board for even more ideas!

My daughter has brought home some subtraction worksheets from school with a few wrong answers… this looks like a great way to help her visualize the math. Thanks, Megan!
