Royal manor holds family math night

Royal Manor Elementary School is making math a family affair, adding a fun twist to engage parents in their child’s learning. On October 19, families and students gathered for a night of math and family fun. Family Math Night gave parents the opportunity to learn what their children learn in the classrooms. Throughout the night, parents received instructions on how to answer their children’s homework questions or how or to solve certain math problems.

“The goal is to get parents more excited and engaged so they can support their kids at home,” said Andrea Mulisano, a first-grade teacher at Royal Manor.

The night gave parents a chance to learn about the online tools that the students use in the classrooms every day. Students use Investigation 3.0 in class, but they also are encouraged to use the online program at home to sharpen their skills. The program encourages students to continue practicing math outside the classroom, even getting their parents involved in the activities.

The event kicked off with students submitting their best guesses for the estimation jar for a chance to win a prize. Families enjoyed pizza and then broke up into stations in the gym for their specific grade levels.

At the stations, the students played games and received take-home bags with more games they could play to support their math skills. Each grade level had math teachers on hand throughout the evening to help answer questions.

This is not the only family-friendly learning that Royal Manor offers. In May, Camp Read a Lot encourages students to read when they go home in the evenings. The staff at Royal Manor hopes that Family Math Night will have the same positive impact on students and their families.

“Parents often wonder about strategies on how to answer certain math problems,” said Abby Weaver, a second-grade teacher. “We want to teach parents about those strategies during Family Math Night.”

Royal Manor Elementary School guides and inspires children to achieve their full potential, develop meaningful relationships and become lifelong learners. This aligns with the main value of Gahanna-Jefferson Public Schools of always “putting students first”.
