Immigration and Math Education at Migrant Ed Family Night

From: Kristen Sheaffer

The Migrant Education Program (MEP) hosted a Family Night at Clear Creek Middle School on February 1st, 2017 that covered immigration and math education.

Prior to the regular meeting, several lawyers and legal representatives were available to speak with families about immigration rights and concerns.

Following a dinner provided by the MEP, parents and children attended a two-park workshop. Parents began with a brief discussion on how to use life experiences to encourage math practice at home.

Meanwhile, each student was given a take-home kit that included playing cards, dice, tangrams, markers, spinners, counters and instructions for simple math games to play at home.
To conclude the workshop, families were brought back together and in a wonderfully empowering role reversal, students became the teachers and taught their parents the new games they had been learning in the workshop.

The MEP would like to especially recognize Maranda Turner, Christie Heflin and Jessica Ramirez for using their personal resources and time to put together enough student take-home kits for every child.
