In celebration of our new Crazy 8s Club, we asked our Facebook fans to caption a photo from one of our Crazy 8s Club activities. We were amazed by the creative captions and couldn’t wait to share a few of our favorites.
Crazy 8s is an over-the-top after-school club designed to get kids excited about math. Clubs meet once a week for 8 weeks (4 weeks for preschool), where kids get the chance to build, run and jump, make music, make a mess… and build friendships at the same time. Activities range from Bouncy Dice Explosion to Toilet Paper Olympics, all with the goal of making math fun.
As part of our nonprofit mission, Bedtime Math has created a free kit of materials and instructions that brings math to life. Nearly everything you need to start your own Crazy 8s Club is in the kit (supplies and easy-to-follow instructions for activities), and it’s easy to coach. Each kit is designed for 10-20 kids; just choose your age level (grades 3-5, K-2, or pre-K) and choose a location (schools, libraries or other after-school community programs). Crazy 8s Clubs are open to everyone; it’s time to make math club the cool thing to do after school!
