Math Night

Our Math Night was a huge success, and I added on to what I had done for my school and decided to share. We used the posters, grade level posters, Sudoku and We Built a Zoo. Then I got kinda carried away. By the time I was done, this unit was 65 pages! Please check this out as one of my featured items at Teacher's Notebook or even repin it. I might redo this with the theme of your choice as a giveaway for 50 followers.Can someone explain how to do the random number generator?


  1. Wow! Sounds like this was an awesome night for parents at your school! Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. It sure was a crazy night. It was the only night book fair was open and our ESL night. Fortunately the PTA donated money and one of our parents works at a local pizza shop.

  2. We are looking into having a math night for our building before the year is over. Your plans look perfect. . . we are a k-2 building. . .what do you think? Would they work for us?

  3. The mind stretcher squares 1-6 would work for late first and second graders but calculators might be helpful. We Built a Zoo, Wild Sudoku, and Animal Stackers are all visual-spatial hands-on activities that would be good through kindergarten. The worksheets have hands-on pieces as well, but the third one also uses a matrix. That one might be tricky for K or 1. With parent or teacher support, you should be fine. I would suggest not printing the intermediate Sudoku for your age group. If you want different signs for the grade levels, let me know. Right now they say pre-K & K, first, second, and each grade has their own animal.

  4. Wow! Love your math night ideas. We are getting ready to have a Science Night at my school. We have grades 2-4.
    Love your blog!! I teach 2nd grade also!
