When we partner with our students’ families and make connections with the community, we show students what collaboration looks like, and we set the whole classroom up for success. Inviting our students’ trusted adults to connect with learning from the classroom helps create opportunities for joyful mathematical learning that transcends the classroom walls. The Eureka Math2™ team has put together the below resources to provide a rich, productive, engaging family night in your learning community.
The Family Night Templates (DOC, 1.5mb) include a Getting Started Letter with information you need to ensure you're prepared for the event and many easy-to-use tools you can download to make sending out invitations to families simple, whether via hard copy or email.
The Family Night Overview Guide (PDF, 6.3mb) offers tips and tricks for creating a Family Math Night at your school. It includes activity suggestions and information to share with parents on the night of the event before families go to various stations with their students.
The Family Night Presentation (PPT, 85.3mb) gives you a slide deck you can use, customize, and present to caregivers during your math night event.
We hope these materials help you engage your students and their families. Additional family resources are available at greatminds.org/eureka-math-squared-family-resources.
