Winter-break math activities online
Crestview is committed to making math come alive for all students. Crestview’s Title I math teachers, Courtney Johnson and Ann Reynolds, work with first- through fourth-grade students who need a little extra help with understanding math concepts. Title I is intended to ensure that all children, regardless of their backgrounds, acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed.
One resource Johnson and Reynolds recommend to staff, students and families is the free web site www.gregtangmath.com. Staff and students may access games and worksheets there to supplement their math curriculums and develop better computational and problem-solving skills. The web site has ongoing games as well as seasonal online math competitions for students around the world to enjoy. Details for the winter challengewere recently released on the website. These activities are designed to keep kids excited about math throughout the holidays.
Additionally, our school library has a number of Greg Tang math books and countless math-related books for students to check out any time. Games and manipulatives are also available for classroom use, many of which have been purchased with Title 1 funds.
