Toffolon Family Math Night

Recently  Louis Toffolon Elementary School fifth teachers hosted a Family Math night for students and their families.  Close to 90 students and their families participated in the event.  Teachers led parents through a deconstructed word problem to demonstrate how students organize their work and thought processes when solving complex word problems.  Students acted as their guide and coaches throughout the problem.  Additionally, teachers led parents through a "Number Talk"  - Number Talks  were developed for classroom teachers to engage students in “mental math” through grappling with interesting mathematics problems.  The evening culminated with parents sharing their thoughts and completing an "exit ticket"  to explain their biggest take away about fifth grade Math.
