At École R.W. Bobby Bend School there is always a variety of math activities occurring around the school.  In Kindergarten to Grade 2, early years teachers weave daily numeracy into calendar time.  For example, students are asked to become the leaders and direct their classmates through various activities.  Through this time, students learn to apply their skills in counting by 1’s, 2’s, 5’s and 10’s in French or in English.  They begin to see patterns in numbers which become the building blocks for Math concepts later on.  As a school-wide activity, our students have been participating in D.E.A.M. (Drop Everything And Math) time.  During this time, the entire school works on a math concept and displays the class results in the hallway for all to see.  Grade 4 students have been trying out their problem solving skills in coding on the computers.  We are excited to be offering a fun-filled evening of math exploration for parents in April during Portfolio Night!
