About a month ago I wrote about my plans for organizing a math night at a local elementary school. The event was SO much fun that I decided to share some photos. Thanks to the school staff, the parents, and the students for making it a great success!
These photos represent only a small subset of the activities. Please refer to the previous math night post for a complete list. I’ve added captions to explain what’s happening. Maybe this will give you the incentive you need to start a math play group this summer!
K-1 kids counted by 2’s and 4’s using the legs on farm animals
K-1 kids solved addition problems by stepping them out on the number line
Grades 2 & 3 created shapes by answering riddles about the attributes
Grades 2 & 3 used the hopscotch game to practice skip counting
Grades 4 & 5 used play money to answer a series of riddles
Grades 4 & 5 used dominoes to compare fractions. The Fraction Tower was a big help. This student had fun lining up the dominoes after he finished the problems.
Grades 4 & 5 had a blast playing multiplication twister
