Setauket Elementary School first-graders are working to build mathematical fluency and numeral understanding as part of the school’s math club.

The club, which has been meeting weekly before school, enables students to work with teachers Lisa Wall and Christine Beck to play a variety of differentiated math games focused on such concepts as numerical operations, regrouping and multiples. After the teachers model the game and discuss the proper strategy, the students work in small groups to play at least two different games each session. 

Fifth-graders at the school volunteer to assist with the club for community service hours and help to mentor the younger students. 

A similar club was held earlier this year for kindergarten students.
