NWT Literacy Council: How to Kit--Family Math
The purpose of this Family Math How To Kit PDF file
is to give instruction on putting on a family math night for elementary students, but it is filled with all sorts of ideas that could be used in the classroom. The Geometry Walk is a great way to help students understand the concept of three-dimensional figures. There are card games that offer practice in adding and subtracting, math bingo, story problems, and games that review time. There are even some math MadLibs. Many of the activities are from the Esso Family Math Program: Resources for Grades 2-5 Children and their Parents, by Barry Onslow and Nancy Chapple. A list of children’s picture books that deal with math concepts is also provided.
