Each year we hear the same complaints about homework. From parents we hear that they want to know how to better help their child with schoolwork, but also that homework doesn't fit with their family schedule, or that it is too hard, or too easy, or not meaningful enough. From students we hear that homework is boring and they'd rather be playing. From research we hear that homework is ineffective and often counter-productive at least at younger grades. How do we meet everyone's needs? Well, we think we've hit on an answer! Why not make homework entail fun and engaging math games that parents and kids play together? This fosters family relationships, builds the school-home connection, engages kids in their learning in a fun way, and builds much needed skills! I'd say that's a win-win-win! These math kits will contain manipulatives and supplies that students and parents can use to play many, many different math games. These games will build fact fluency and number sense - two of the foundations of mathematical success in later years. Sending home a kit with each child, helps build equity so that those who do not have as many supplies at home will still be able to engage in the homework without additional stress. I'm so excited for my students and their parents to be able to engage in meaningful learning together at home!
