Math Mania Takes Over J. Fred Sparke School
Math Mania recently took over at J. Fred Sparke Elementary
School in Island Trees.
Math Mania is a program designed to build students' math
skills while encouraging fun, math-based interactions between
parents and children.
Students and their parents work together on a packet of
math-based activities and students submit a log recording the
additional time spent each week on math activities.
Students who hand in their math logs have their names
added to a "Math Hall of Fame," and their names are entered into
a drawing for raffle prizes.
Program highlights included an assembly program sponsored
by the Island Trees Elementary PTA and Family Math Night,
organized and facilitated by teachers.
Kindergarten and first graders also worked on daily math
problems, shared over the morning announcements.
During the month, enthusiasm for math grew as students
learned that "Numbers are Fun"!
