This photo is an excellent example of the power of the Nifty Numbers Family Math Night banners. A parent is showing her child how the fraction 3/3 is the same as the number ’1′ and then uses this information to help her child complete the activity.
The banners serve several important functions. Besides being attractive, they give the participants an indication of what to expect at each station. In addition, they provide some specific examples of the activities and help to solidify the concepts presented as in the fraction example mentioned above does.
Because the banners are hung near each station, participants don’t need to crowd around and wait their turn to see the information. They were designed to be easy to read from 10-15 feet away.
And, finally, when you provide quality materials to your audience, in this case families, it lets them know that what they are doing is important. Getting families together doing and communicating about mathematics is important. Your Nifty Numbers kit will reflect that.
The banners are made of vinyl, include grommets for easy display, and will last forever if taken care of properly.
