I teach second grade. I would like to include a Math
game workshop with parents involved. I also feel it will be a good topic for a back to school night in September when the parents are freshly motivated after the summer. I would welcome any suggestions.

After thinking about the math in games, I decided to plan a Family Math Night around games that the children are familiar with. A note was sent home for families to list games that they thought had math in them and a willingness to bring the game(s) Math Night....planned for end of April. That night there will be signs such as time, money, patterns, numbers etc. up around our gym with families cued ahead of time as to where to place their game for sharing. It is my hope to tie the home connection of math to what is done at school.
