Can you hear it? Waves lapping the beach, ice cream truck jingles, basketballs bouncing on sidewalks, and the crackle of a bonfire or barbecue—summer's almost here!

As the traditional school year winds down and summer heats up, we invite your students and you to participate in one of our favorite ST Math challenge themes: JiJi's Summer Math Club!


This summer-long challenge is open to all ST Math schools or classes with an active license for summer school, as well as schools using ST Math Immersion. Individual students—including ST Math Homeschool students—are also welcome to participate!

JiJi's Summer Math Club is also another expanded learning opportunity and a great way to encourage students to play ST Math and accelerate their math achievement while having fun at the same time. 

Let's start with our school/class challenge. For the individual students' challenge, keep scrolling!

How to Participate as an Individual Student

Each week, have your student choose at least one of the activities JiJi's picked out for them to keep learning and growing in math. Use a sticker, pen, or other marker to indicate which activity was completed each week. 

  1. Print out the JiJi's Summer Math Club tracker or save it digitally. We're going to hang ours on the fridge!

  2. Have your student choose at least one activity to try each week for six weeks out of the summer. When they complete an activity, mark it on the tracker! Here are the different categories of activities to choose from and how to complete them:

    ST Math
    Play ST Math for at least 60 minutes over the course of the week! It can be all at once, or broken up into 30 minute sessions, 20 minute sessions, etc.

    Developing Our MathMINDs
    Complete one of the activities from our 8-week Developing Our MathMINDs series! You can find a list of all of the activities at the bottom of this blog post.

    MathMINDs Games
    Read one of the MathMINDs storybooks and then play the accompanying game, if available. Find the full list of storybooks, printables, and online games here under free resources.

    See the Math
    Get creative with this one! How can you see math in everyday summer activities? Is there math involved in swimming, cooking, baseball, nature walks, trips to the grocery store, art museums, roller coasters, bubbles, etc.? Encourage your student to make mathematical connections to the things around them. Have a thoughtful conversation with them about the math they're seeing. Isn't it amazing? Math is everywhere!

  3. If your student completes their tracker, take a screenshot of it and post to Twitter OR Instagram. Make sure to include @STMath AND #JiJisMathClub. You can also share photos of the activities as your student tries and completes them. We'd love to celebrate summer with you!
