Math Games are Alive and Well at St. David School
St. David School hosted a Christmas Math Morning for students and their families to encourage Growth Mindset, specifically in math acquisition. One of the school’s main focuses this year is continued emphasis on promoting a greater collaboration between educators, students and their families. St. David School works closely with families because when there is a trusting, respectful relationship between the home and school, students have a better chance of being successful academically, socially and emotionally.
During the math morning, all parents and family members played fun, educational math games at school the with their children, then were given a Math Bag to take home. The Math Bag was filled with dice, cards and math game instructions as well as other simple math tools that they were encouraged to use at home to support their children build confidence in math.
