Family Math Night at the Local Grocery Store ACTIVITIES

Mary Bauer recently commented on my post about the Family Math Night at a local grocery store:
"We have a local grocery store that would participate. What kind of activities do families do?':
You can see that I have created activity sheets for Grades Kindergarten through 6th Grade.

 Here is an example of the Kindergarten Activity sheet:
The activities at each grade level are based on the Common Core Standards.
I've taken into consideration that your local grocery store may be different from the one in my area. 

Since the format of my packet is in PowerPoint, the pages are be editable , so you can easily change the wording of the document.

Do you want to host a school event that will draw a large crowd?
Then use the suggestions provided on the page titled, 
"Suggestions to Promote the Event." 

What if too many people attend?
 Read my suggestions about creating Estimation Alley to have attendees do before entering the Event.

 The entire Math Night kit is NOW available in my Teacher Pay Teacher store. Click to take a look at the 39 page packet.

Here is another example from the packet:
(One school had a volunteer near the meat department with a set of calculators to assist the students as they calculated the answers for Number 2 on this sheet.) 

Also included in the packet is a checklist of all the tasks that the Organizing Committee needs to do to prepare for the Math Night Event.

Parents complete this form at the end of the night to praise their children as they recognize mathematical skills used by their children.

Family Math Night at the Local Grocery Store

More work on those Family Math Night at the Local Grocery Store documents.
Today I made a WELCOME banner to hang above the registration table. I used PowerPoint to create the banner.

Upcoming Project: Family Math Night at the Local Grocery Store

I recently attended a Family Math Night at a local grocery store. It was fantastic. In fact, I am so excited about the possibilities and value of these types of events that I am working on a packet of materials needed for a Family Math Night that your school can also hold with all the planning done, and editable sheets to use at the event for Grades K - 5.
So far, I've created an informational/sign-up letter about the event, a poster for the event to be placed on the front door of the grocery store doors, and a parent response letter to their child to be posted back at school the day following the event.
Here is a peek of what I am working on...

Positive Parent Letter to their Child about their work at the Family Math Night.
These letters  would be hung up in the hallway the day after the event under the heading of,
"My Parents Think I'm a Super Hero."

Would you like to hold an event like this at
your local grocery store?

Thinking Map: Brace Map with Multigrade Adaptations

 I'm taking a photography class with my new camera. That lead to the creation of these teaching materials using my photographs of a Ford Mustang and a Thinking Map  called a "Brace Map.".

I created a  set of teaching materials to be used with a sentence strip chart.  Brace Maps explain the relationship of the whole to their parts. I would be happy to share this two page resource with you by clicking HERE.
Teacher Page

Student Page
I created some additional pages that expands
 the teacher materials provided:
First, individual pictures with a label are provided for each "part" to use during your Whole Group Teaching Lesson.


If you need a Multi-Grade Adaptation, the below sheet could be given to the higher grade students or more talented reading students.  In this assignment, one of the parts is further expanded into new categories. For example, the wheel could be broken down into tire, hubcap,  wheel well, or lug nuts.

Here is a link to the complete unit for $1.50 at my
 Teacher Pay Teacher Account... click HERE.
Leave a comment and tell me what you think.
