This month our students are working with fractions, discovering symmetry, building 3D shapes, and spying them in everyday objects. It can become difficult with the growing schedule of extra curricula and sport commitments this month to find time to fit in the additional activities and games that enrich our children’s learning and cultivate their enthusiasm for math. Stories at bedtime continue to be a great avenue for placing math in context. Check our local libraries for these titles: City By Numbers by Stephen T. Johnson; Circus Shapes and other stories by Stuart J. Murphy and Tona Hoban.
Kids love any and all time on your phones, computers, or laptops. Use this interest and send them to www.pbskids.org/games/shapes.html. The site is loaded with meaningful, engaging activities that make screen time good for their brain!
