First Grade Summer Learning Math Clubs: Real World Problems
August 11, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 9:45 am EDT
Summer should be about having FUN. More than ever, kids need to try new things, explore, learn in the real world, and meet and interact with friends. Summer Learning Clubs do just that. Students will directly interact with their peers and teachers with a focus on real life learning. Small group instruction will be provided in a 1:6 teacher-to-student ratio, facilitated by experienced K-8 certified teachers.
Math clubs meet to explore math concepts. Each week we will look deeply at math stories to explore the why and how math works. We will use problem solving to teach math skills. Each session a real world problem will be posed to the group, then students will work collaboratively to develop strategies and multiple models to find solutions to the problem. Through discussion students will articulate their understanding of the math involved. Additional problems will be provided to work on following the session.
Each class is a blended learning platform, offering the option of in-person or virtual learning. Please select ticket options carefully. The waitlist option is for the in-person class, so if tickets are sold out for the virtual option, please email Mary Parmelee at [email protected] so she can place you on a waitlist for the virtual class.
