St. Mary Catholic School Enjoys ESSO Family Math Night


January 11, 2008 - St. Mary Catholic Elementary School recently was involved in another in the series of the Esso Family Math Nights where everyday materials and math games are used to help children understand math ideas and where parents and children have fun sharing their thinking and understanding of Mathematics.

“Mathematical Me” was the focus of the Early Years (ages 4-6) workshop facilitated by Miss Waern, the JK/SK teacher. Students were actively involved in making the graph entitled “How old are you”. Number sense and numeration became alive for the students as they applied personal experience to the graph they were constructing.

Mrs. Morin, the grade 3/4 teacher led the “Measurement” workshop for Grade 2-5 students. Ms Bruneau, the grade 1 / 2 teacher lent her expertise as well during these activities. A lot of string was used to measure all sorts of items - even heads! Estimates were made based on certain measurements. Various other math activities were held while parents and their children had fun with Math.

All families were treated to a lasagna supper before beginning the math projects. Many thanks to all who participated, cooked, and cleaned up! Thanks as well to the St. Mary Catholic School Council who funded the meal. We eagerly look forward to the next Math session. For more information about the Esso Family Math Nights please visit
