Just the Basics – Quick Reference for Math Support at Home

So it’s true that there’s a lot to learn in math each year.  But there are some major themes of each grade level, especially concepts that parents can help with at home.  This is a nice resource for parents and teachers of students in grades K through 3.  Think of it as a tip sheet, or book mark, whatever you like.  If you’re not sure how to help your child with math homework or what to say, this tool can help!

Bedtime Math

My principal has started sharing all the math related articles he finds with me.  On the one hand, it means I’ve got more reading to do.  On the other, I find out about awesome resources like . . . Bedtime Math!

So the idea is this: everyone knows about the importance of reading a bedtime story.  Why not some bedtime math problems?  This nonprofit, working in partnership with the Overdeck Foundation, has developed bedtime math problems associated with a short story.  Each story has 3 levels of problems based on age and skill.

They’ve even got a book for sale that builds on the same ideas you find on the website.

Perhaps my favorite at bedtimemath.org is the Crazy 8s Club.  This club is designed to meet after school for about 8 weeks for varying grade levels/ages.  Anyone can lead the club and the materials are free.  What an amazing resource!
