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.

I'm anxious to hear about your family math night. Although it is not math/science related, we just presented a family night for reading literacy. It's the same concept, though, since it shows parents how they can enhance their children's reading/writing through everyday home acivities.It was quite successful and we only did it at the KG level this time. I'm our parent ed coordinator, so I'm hoping to expand to the first and second grade level in the coming year.Love to hear about your math night, since I'd like to venture to that area too.
