Crazy 8s Math Club

The nonprofit organization Bedtime Math, which is devoted to helping kids enjoy math and incorporate it into their play and daily life, has developed a new after-school club called Crazy 8s.  Every week kids get to build stuff, run and jump, make music, make a mess.  This seems like a great fit for summer programs, or to continue your terrific STEAM-based programming throughout the next year.

Crazy 8s is designed for 10-20 kids per club: enough to make it fun, but still manageable for a single adult. The club is available for three age levels – preschool, grades K-2 and grades 3-5 – all featuring hands-on activities like Glow-in-the-Dark Geometry and Toilet Paper Olympics.  Clubs will take place after school at schools, libraries and other recreational programs.  
The free kit contains nearly all materials needed, as well as easy-to-follow instructions and collateral you can use to promote the club.  Schools provide the coach and a few inexpensive, easy to find supplies. Check out Crazy 8s for more information or sign up to be a coach.  Crazy 8s: Math will never be the same!
