Minute Math Sessions for Parents

I have been thinking of how to better reach the families of my students and help them with using math strategies at home. There never seems to be enough time, but if someone is really worth it, then I just need to make the time for it.

With that in mind, I came up with the idea of a
 "Minute Math Session" for Parents 

This is a lightning speed, 15 minute tip session for parents. I am doing it during my lunch hour, and I hope that if this is successful, that I can turn over the strategy "showings" and have them as leadership opportunities for my students.
Here's my idea:

1. Parents RSVP for the event.

2. Parents will come to my room at the start of my lunch period on the day of the event.

3.I spend 2-4 minutes introducing to one or two math strategies we are using in the classroom.

4. Parents get a copy of the supplies/materials needed and get some hands-on practice time with me.

5. Ask Questions!

6. Parent take materials and leave.

The first one is this Friday - here is the one of the tips.

  1. Hi! Great advice! I think, good, fun karaoke sessions in the car would complement your other ideas for parental involvement! This is a sample of my album 'Times Tables Music' released March 1st 2016! ( I hope you don't mind my posting it in your comments )
