Math Magicians Challenge Offered for Children in Grades K-3

Summer has come early in some ways. While children are out of school for an extended period, the commonly known regression in academic growth, dubbed the “summer slide,” has been traditionally combated by public libraries with summer reading programs. According to the Brookings Institution, analysis reveals math skills may regress far more in youth than reading skills. Enter Coronado Public Library, offering the remote “Coronado Math Magicians” challenge in order to help children keep the threat of what perhaps may become known as the “spring slide” at bay.

Voila! Children in Grades K-3 in Coronado are invited to transform their math skills by participating in ‘Coronado Math Magicians,’ a math-oriented, home-based learning initiative. Coronado Public Library will be posting a new math activity very week within its Instagram highlight “Math Magicians.”

Children may participate at their leisure, or rather, at their parents’ leisure, for the wonderfully simple sake of participating. The library invites them to post images of their progress. Activities include forming fun creations out of tangram puzzle shapes, which participants can first cut out of construction paper. Cameos from math teachers can also be expected. This program runs through Thursday, April 30.
