Hi! It’s Monday, June 21, 2010 and time for Math at ClickSchooling!
DreamBox Blog: June Math Activity Calendar
Age Range: 5-12 (approximately)
School teachers caution parents to avoid the “Summer Slide” by giving kids learning activities that will keep their math skills sharp all summer long. That way, kids can spend less time reviewing math concepts previously learned when school starts after summer vacation.
To that end, this commercial website (that sells curriculum) offers a FREE “Math Activity Calendar” with suggestions for things kids can do this summer to practice math.
When you get to the site you’ll see the DreamBox Blog page and a picture of the “June Math Activity Calendar.” Click on the calendar to open the pdf that you can print out and put on your wall. It includes activities such as:
*Bowl ‘til You Drop Day — If you bowl a strike, a spare and a six in three continuous frames, how many points will you get?
*June 21st Celebrate the Summer Solstice — the longest day of the year — by finding out how many hours of sun you’ll get!
*On Paper Airplane Day, fold four different paper airplanes and let them fly, then time which one stays in the air the longest.
The calendar currently shown on the site is for the month of June – but most of the activities could be done on any day of the year (weather permitting). I mention this because it’s not clear if this company intends to provide a “Math Activity Calendar” each and every month.
That said, there is a Homefires’ Free Learning Calendar.
