    Great article! We use paper plates with numbers on them to practice math facts, throw the on the floor and pick them up, or jump from one to the other.
    I also made a plastic table cloth hop scotch with numbers to jump on, so that I do not have to rewrite them all the time. The numbers are different in each row, so that we can practice adding, subtracting and multiplying depending on the day.
