Math Wizards Jr. Fall 2nd grade

Come for an hour and have fun strengthening your number sense! Class will be divided into two segments. First, students work cooperatively to solve “Challenges” (problem solving, brain teasers, pattern recognition). Then a new game (or games) will be presented and practiced with the whole group. Next, students will divide into pairs/small groups to play another round.  Students earn raffle tickets for participation and effort; drawings are held weekly and small prizes are received. Just bring your enthusiasm and enjoyment of math!

*Each week, your child will bring home at least one new game packet, including all necessary materials, for your family to keep, play, and enjoy.
