Elementary Flex Wednesday Fun

K flex

For several months the elementary teachers have teamed up to create a fun, hands-on learning experience called “Flex Wednesday.” This flex time allows students to focus on all of the strands of mathematics: numbers and operation, algebra, statistics and probability, and data analysis. The students are able to work with different students and teachers that they may not get to work with during the regular school day.

This opportunity allows students to expand their learning and strengthen math knowledge, while allowing students to improve their communication and problem-solving skills as well.
