Math Night @ Monaco Elementary

In October, Monaco Elementary held its annual Math Night where parents were invited into the classroom with their children to experience how we teach math. For the fifth grade presentation, we created and “I do” to teach how we create patterns using shapes and displayed how they progress with each step. For the “You do,” we allowed the students and parents to choose their shapes and create their own patterns on the Smart Board. The patterns were saved and we allowed other students and parents to manipulate the shapes in order to develop an answer. The activity was very simple, but incredibly effective in engaging our guests.

WOW! Great use of your time and the families' time. I bet your students were able to show the parents a thing or two about patterns and technology!
