Family Math Night Resource
Encouraging the school-to-home connection is essential in keeping students on the right track. With a Family Fun Math Night, parents are invited to join their kids at school for an evening of hands-on math activities and fun! The focus of this event is to introduce the families to some of the Michigan Standards in Mathematics and new visual models and strategies used in the classroom.
This Family Math Night Kit User Guide contains planning and preparation tips to host a Family Math Night, an invitation to send home to parents, and an assortment of suggested games to play during the event. The games cover the Numbers and Operations domain in the Michigan Mathematics Standards for Kindergarten through 3rd grade.
