Are you looking for an activity that will allow your child to continue learning and have fun over the summer break? Then check out Greg Tang’s Summer Break Math Challenge! (http://gregtangmath.com/summer)
During the break, students can go to gregtangmath.com to complete the activities on the attached game board HSES Summer Math Level 1.pdf. The additional game boards are on the site listed above.
This is an optional activity. Students who can’t participate will not be penalized in any way. Students who complete the challenge earn a certificate, a HSES prize and a chance to win a personalized signed copy of one of Greg Tang’s books (if you enter your child’s name on the website).
It is fine for students to get help from you or someone else if they need it. They can also move to a harder or easier level of the game to make things more or less challenging.
After your child completes a game board, be sure to enter them for a chance to win a prize (this is done on the website listed above). Please sign and return completed game boards to school by Friday, September 14, 2018. Additional game boards will be available on the HSES website.
Gregtangmath.com plans to add interactive game boards that will guide your children through games that will help them the most. Be on the lookout for the interactive game boards coming this summer!
