Have Kids? Missing Math?

In just a few short weeks my kids and I will be partaking in this water obstacle course on Lake Siskiyou in Northern California. After several tentative years in the water, my 6-year-old recently learned to swim and now I can’t seem to get him to keep is head or body above water.

I put this list together for families in my district in the hopes that math could get equal air time to reading this summer.  Maybe I’ll find time later to comment on some of my favorites, but in the meantime, I hope it’s useful to other parents.

    It is so obvious about how reading gets priority and no one thinks of math. Why did no one think of this sooner
