We had a great Valentine's Day (considering it was a big old full moon)! We did some Valentine's Day problem solving using Music-Mix-Math which you can download free from Laura Candler - here. This was such an engaging activity for my children! I created four Valentine's problems - 2 per side per page. I told the children to walk quickly around the room (with pencil and paper) changing direction often. When the music stopped they partnered up with the person closest to them - who they could work well with. Then they read problem number 1, discussed it, and each wrote a solution on the paper. The music resumed. They walked around again. When the music stopped, they found a new partner, discussed question 1 to see if they had the same answer, and explained the reasoning if they didn't. Then this new pair worked on question 2. The process repeated until the 4 questions were solved and checked. I gave only a few minutes per question. They were 100% on task! Give it a try! Here is a picture of my lovelies hard at work and the music I used today. Happy Valentine's Day!
