Fall “4″ Math starts Monday! This program, co-sponsored by DAEG and the Darien elementary schools, encourages students to play math games at home with parents, siblings and friends daily for two weeks: October 15-26. These games will focus on developing logical thinking, spatial reasoning, critical problem solving, and even math fact skills! Here’s how:
- Set aside two dice, a deck of cards and some coins in a ‘Math Box’.
- Go to www.darienps.org/mathmadness/ for grade-appropriate links and games developed by the district.
- Have your child record time and games played each day in the Play Log (check that backpack or download in excel) starting this Monday, 10/15.
- Return the Play Log to school on Monday, 10/22 and Monday, 10/29.
At the end of the two-week play period, the class in each grade at your school with the highest total percentage of participation will win a prize! Ready, Set, MATH!
