Hello!  I just received the following email about free resources for integrating numeracy into your summer reading program for children up to middle school age.  This website also has a lot of other numeracy activities that you may be interested in integrating into some of your other programs throughout the year.  It looks like many of these are available in Spanish.

Here is a direct link to the activities that relate to the 2011 summer reading program: http://mixinginmath.terc.edu/Themes/Stories_World2011.cfm

Subject: [statereps-cslp] Free resources designed for One World Many Stories

Hi everyone!

TERC, a non profit educational organization in Cambridge, MA, has created some wonderful activities for our librarians to use as part of their "One World, Many Stories" programming.

TERC would like to share their activities and resources with any library participating in One World Many Stories. Please read the message below for  more information.

Dear Library Colleagues,

I'm writing to let you know about Mixing in Math (MiM), a set of FREE materials in English and Spanish, designed for integrating numeracy into story time, summer reading, and crafts for children and families.

Through their Mixing in Math grant, I've worked with TERC staff to assist many MA librarians incorporate math skills into programs already being led. It's an appealing and engaging way to draw in new patrons, to offer them something different,  and to reinforce skills children are learning in school.

MiM was designed with input from hundreds of librarians from MA, CT, NY, CA, MO, and other states. MiM resources include posters, games, calendars, crafts, and projects that are easy to use and fun for adults and children. The resources combine common library themes, such as animals, food, and holidays with the math of sizes, shapes, patters, measurement.  MiM was funded by the National Science Foundation, and created at TERC, a non-profit educational organization.

Check the MiM website: http://mixinginmath.terc.edu<http://mixinginmath.terc.edu/> to learn more and to download the materials.  If you have any questions about our experience with MiM in MA, please contact me.  If you'd like to reach the developers of MiM or would like to arrange for a free webinar, please contact mixinginmath at terc.edu<mailto:mixinginmath at terc.edu>.

We encourage you to let children's librarians in your area know about Mixing in Math.  You may forward this message or put a link up to the Mixing in Math site (or to the free summer reading 2011 resources http://mixinginmath.terc.edu/Themes/Stories_World2011.cfm).
