Recognizing that many of their students entering pre-kindergarten and kindergarten are unprepared to learn mathematics, Ms. Pollack and her partners host “Family Math Playtime” to help parents understand how the language of mathematics applies to young learners and how to present mathematics concepts to their children. Students and parents engage in mathematics activities designed to promote critical thinking and build foundational skills. Using “make and take” stations, parents create materials to help continue their children’s learning at home.
