Subject: math in games
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.

Karen. This idea of a Family Game Night is great. It will allow the parents to be a part of their child's mathematical experience. It is a wonderful home-school connection and the children will gain much from it as will the parents. What grade level are you talking about doing this with? I teach first grade and I could see this as being a beneficial activity. I wish you luck in this activity and wait to hear how it goes. I am going to try this activity nearer the end of the school year. Good Luck! Laura Goodreau
