Elementary Math Night 2019
Elementary Math Game Night
About 110 K-5 students and parents enthusiastically participated in the annual F-P Elementary Math Game Night on Thursday, October 10th. Everyone enjoyed being in the newly renovated cafeteria to play math-related games with each other. Games were set up to allow all abilities to engage in a night of fun with their family and friends. Many new games were added to the evening such as games that reinforce the basic operations, strategy games reinforcing plotting of coordinates and blocking of opponents, building sophisticated equations with cards, and games of quick response in order to match properties of objects on cards or identifying sequences of numbers. Our younger students were able to build patterns and geometric shapes and designs using pattern blocks and geoboards. Ipads were set up for students and parents to explore various math apps and sites. All students were given the opportunity to win 2 pumpkins by estimating their weight. They were also able to enter to win a large bucket of candy by estimating the number of pieces in the bucket.
