In the summer I try to share fun family things on the blog, from photos of the students reading in wild and wonderful places to zippy family learning ideas I come across.
Your Crazy 8s mathematicians will love this from Bedtime Math! Check it out.
“Have fun comparing coins, buying prizes with them, and finally winning them in an extreme version of Rock, Paper, Scissors!” Our breakfast math club is a blast!
Crazy 8s Breakfast Math Club, how we love you! Geometry ruled this week as our tetrahedron creations glowed. We made a giant skyscraper of glowsticks and styrofoam balls, learned to recognize some important 3-D shapes, and designed pyramids to study patterns. Try some Bedtime Math stories from our club sponsors tonight to continue the math love!
We featured the first week of Crazy 8s on our blog back in the winter with Glow-in-the-Dark Geometry. Here are some glimpses of the other fantastic weeks. So many thanks to Bedtime Math and their generous sponsors of Crazy 8s. (Have you tried their bedtime math yet? Studies have shown this nightly math fun significantly improves children’s math gains.)
