Puzzles, card games and a scavenger hunt and were just some of the engaging activities that primary school students and their families enjoyed during the Family Math/ELA Night on Jan. 15.
Held in the Bayville Primary School multipurpose room, attendees from both of the district’s primary schools had the opportunity to rotate through many activities that were fun while boosting reading and math skills. Students went home with the games they played, allowing them to practice these skills with their families.
“This is an opportunity not only to improve proficiency in important areas, but also to spend quality family time doing something meaningful,” said Kimberly Ferina, Coordinator of Mathematics, K-12. “Students are excited to come back to school at night to play these games and don’t consider it work. That’s our goal, to make students eager learners and help them understand that education is not a chore.”
The event was organized by Ms. Ferina and Dorothy McManus, Coordinator of ELA, K-5.
