Math in the Library

Bedtime MathFor many families, bedtime stories are a nightly routine. Bedtime Math is a program that aims to make “math a fun part of kids’ everyday lives.”

Parents can check the website or sign up via email to receive daily math problems for wee ones (pre-school), little kids (kindergarten-2nd grade), and big kids (2nd grade and up). To learn more about the program, check out this article.

Libraries can get involved by hosting a pajama party. Funded through the Bedtime Math Foundation, you can order a FREE kits to host a pajama party at your library!

Bedtime Math can also be tied into your Summer Reading program! You can order calendars and stickers so kids can chart their progress. Why not encourage kids to improve their math and reading skills over the summer?
