For the second year in a row the non-profit Mixing in Math has developed ready-to-use programming ideas that correlated with the Collaborative Summer Library Program’s summer reading theme—night, Dream Big: Read! Activities are primarily designed for school-age children.
You can download and print these ready-to-use activities to add math to your summer programming. Each activity has a blue box on left that identifies recommended grade level, estimated time to do the activity, math concepts introduced in the activity, list of materials needed to do the activity, and 2 picture book suggestions. Looking through some of the activities, it would be easy to identify different picture books to support the math concepts covered in the activities if you don’t have the suggested titles or you don’t think they will work with your particular group of kids.
