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"!
