Kindergarten - 1st Grade Community Math Night

At Erving Elementary School we’ve been having fun with mathematics – during the school day and in the evenings!  After we met with the school committee in January, it was clear that offering multiple venues for learning would be very useful for our community.  Classroom teachers, along with paraprofessionals and the math coach and principal have planned and participated in numerous events all winter and spring. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at
In the meantime, enjoy the pictures!

Teachers at Erving have spent time delving into mathematics together.  We are doing this in a number of ways.  One way we find very useful is to visit each other’s classrooms.  We do the mathematics of the lesson together and discuss important ideas about teaching and learning. We then visit the classrooms in action and debrief our visit afterwards.  We’ve also invited colleagues from other schools to learn with and from us.
