The PTA Summer Math Club is open to students entering grades K-8. It provides participating students with three brand new math packets, for each grade level, that feature a variety of fun and interesting math activities, designed to keep young math minds active all summer long. After students submit each completed packet, they will receive prizes and their next math packet. Help them review all they learned this year!
1. Below you will find a link to the first packets (white) for each grade level. Each packet contains three opportunities to earn a prize – triangle, circle and star. Complete each activity within that shape to earn the prize for that shape. Earn up to three prizes for each packet! Math activities include a variety of fun options, including Math Task worksheets that are also included in the packet. The packets are password protected.
The password was shared in Dr. Russell’s May 29 email to all current families and in a PTA announcement on June 4th.
Note: Select the grade your student is entering in the fall. For example, if your student is going into second grade in the fall, select the second grade packet. It will review what they learned this year in first grade to prepare them for second grade.
2. Once you’ve completed your White Packet, complete this Google Form to let us know you are done and to get your next packet. NOTE: Green packet 2 will be available after 6/15 and Yellow packet 3 will be available after 7/6.
3. For each packet, once you submit your Google Form, you will have access to answer keys to check your work, as well as tutorial videos with high school graders walking you through each of the Math Tasks. Note: The High School Graders are also available to help with any math questions you may have for each packet.
4. Math Club Prizes can be collected at the Downers Grove Public Library, at 1050 Curtiss St., Downers Grove, IL 60515, during library hours (once they are open again), at the Children’s Circulation Desk. Feel free to collect your prize after you complete each packet, or to collect them all at the end. Prize pickup will be a quick stop into the Library to pick-up the prizes only. There will not be an opportunity to ask questions about your packets or have them reviewed in person this year. We plan to be back to our normal procedures for 2021! Prizes include stampers, erasers, small toys and food coupons!
JOIN THE FUN! No need to sign up, just start working on your packet. Green packets and first prizes will be available at the library after 6/15. Yellow packets and second prizes will be available after 7/6.
