Hi all- The following information came from a vendor- but it is for a FREE opportunity for libraries.
About Crazy 8s:
Have you heard about Crazy 8s? It's a brand new, over-the-top after-school club designed to get kids fired up about math. Every week kids get to build stuff, run and jump, make music, make a mess...and make friendships at the same time. It's time for math to become the cool thing to do after school.
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!
