Think Math Isn't Fun? Think Again!!
In Lake Oswego @ Uplands Elementary, we offer 2 weeks of classes. Each week consists of 5 different games and different math crafts each week! Sign up for one week or both!
Have you ever thought of how a game of hopscotch could help your kids with place value? Or, how kids could get reinforcement in adding or multiplying multi-digit numbers with a bean bag toss game? If you have a student entering grades 1-5, join us at our summer session of Math Gamers, called Math Gamers “Active,” and you'll see how it works!
A special set of "active" games, in which kids keep moving, have been designed for the summer session. So, they're moving and learning math all at the same time!
In each class, students learn at least one new game. Maximum number of students per session is 12, so participants get one-on-one guidance, supervision, and help with the math concepts/skills addressed.
Throughout the week, students will also be working on a “math” art project. This is a craft or art activity that uses some type of math concept, such as geometry, symmetry, patterns, sequencing. The goal is to show students how math is everywhere! And, they have a product to take home at the end of the week.

In Newberg @ Chehalem Parks and Rec, we spend one day doing a measuring activity called, "Measuring Baxter the Dog©!" Baxter is a real Aussie mix who loves kids, and he'll help us learn how to measure in a new and fun way (e.g., how long is his tail, how much does he eat? How long does it take him to fetch a ball?)! We'll even do a math craft with the symmetry of Baxter's face in mind!
