BEF Teacher Grant Project Showcase:

Ayers Ryal Side Elementary School

"Promoting Number Sense & Math at Home"

Awarded in June 2023, the

Promoting Number Sense and Math At Home

Grant's goal is to create a partnership between parents, teachers, and students within the

Ayers Ryal Side community.

This grant sets out to encourage the development of math strategies through playing math games that build up foundational skills and math fluency facts.

The math game kits have been distributed to all students at Ayers Ryal Side Elementary School,

in grades K-4.

The school has encouraged different challenges with the math kits throughout the school year and had about 75 students participate in the December vacation week challenge.

During both December and February school vacation weeks, students played various math games and earned stickers to color in their JiJi 🐧display in the school lobby.

Great job!

The Beverly Education Foundation is so very grateful for the Cummings Foundation support of our mission to enhance and enrich public education in Beverly.

These funds are already being put to great use!

Here is one recent example of these grant funds in action:

Some lucky students were selected to assist in the kit assembly to put all the pieces together.

At Beverly Middle School, the STEM Department was able to purchase

4 new Prusa 3D Printers.

We can't wait to see some of the new ideas and projects the BMS students are able to design and build with this new equipment!
