Math is Fun!!!

We have been working on multiplication for some time now. Grade 3 students invited their parents to share with them a variety of activities on multiplication. First, we had a game called "treasure land" and then we had a race of 3 serious. Parents observed their children playing and working with other children and they got ideas for games and activities to do at home. Many students felt special when their parents take part in the classroom experience. They see their parents in a different role. Educating children is a shared responsibility between parents and teachers. When parents participate in their child's learning experience, everyone wins.

Bravo Maya for a welldone activity with parents. After kids learned the multiplication table, it was time for them to boast of their achievement in front of their parents. You had a group winner but in fact all are because you briged their two most important worlds. I hope you see it as i do. Such activities promote solid home school partnership and are thus recipes for success. I do thank you and the parents a lot
