J. Fred Sparke Family Math Night a Success!
J. Fred Sparke students and their
parents enjoyed a variety of engaging math activities at Family
Math Night during Math Mania in January. Throughout
the evening, students and their families participated in
fun-filled math centers. Kindergarten students played a
game of Ten Go Fish, sorted tiles and completed a bar graph, and
challenged their parent to Addition Cross-Out. First
graders created addition and subtraction number sentences to win
Number Tic Tac Toe and rolled dice to Race to the Equation.
At the end of each activity, you could hear families discussing
the best strategy to use to win the next time they played the
game. Several students were overheard telling their
parents that math is fun! This evening was the perfect
opportunity for families to spend time together playing a
variety of math games. These activities review and
strengthen math concepts for students, in addition to bringing
excitement to mathematics for the families.
