June 15, 2020 Hello families! Summer is here and it’s time to enjoy the warm weather! Getting out with your children safely to explore math in the outdoors can be fun! Indoors or outdoors, math practice helps them get ready for their new school year. The elementary math coaches have created Summer Math Calendars for students to complete at home during July and August. Participation is voluntary. The goal is for students to spend at least 10 minutes a day, 3 to 5 days a week completing their choice of the short activities that are listed on the calendars. Please help them keep their work neat and organized. It can be recorded in a physical notebook, folder or binder and submitted to their new teacher when school resumes. It can also be submitted in one digital fle to the math coaches through email when all of the work is completed. (See below for email addresses.) Be sure to have your child’s FIRST and LAST name and the grade that they are entering visible on the cover of their paper or digital fle. Students who return Summer Math notebooks or folders to their new teachers or the math coaches will receive recognition and an award from the math department if they turn in completed work for at least 24 days. These calendars will be available all summer on their current teacher’s Google Classroom and also on the Medford Public School’s website. They will be posted on the Math Department page as well. Have a wonderful summer!! MPS Elementary Math Coach at the McGlynn and Columbus: Grace Basile
