Grades 1 – 8

With funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF), LDANR is excited to continue its first individualized math program!

This project will implement one-on-one numeracy tutoring for children in Grades 1-8. This program is intended for children who are demonstrating difficulties in mathematics and showing signs of math anxiety due to a suspected or diagnosed learning disability (i.e. dyscalculia). This program will focus on both improving children’s numeracy skills while also improving their confidence in their math abilities! Children work one-on-one with a trained numeracy tutor for eight weeks on foundational numeracy skills and computational fluency. Sessions are taught through a combination of direct instruction and engaging math games and activities. Similar to our Reading Rocks program, children will practice self-regulation through goal-setting and graphing their success throughout the program.

Fall 2021 Schedule

Given the progression of the COVID-19 outbreak and the uncertainty surrounding the upcoming Fall season, the LDANR made the decision to continue our suspension of in-person programming. It has been determined that minimizing face-to-face interaction between our program participants, caregivers, and staff would be the best measure to ensure safety at this time. 

The LDANR Team have been working diligently to come up with creative solutions to continue to provide services to our program families during this challenging time. With this being noted, we are excited that we will be offering JUMP Math online. See below for program details.

Dates: October 18th – December 9th
Time: 6:00 – 7:00 pm (Mondays and Wednesdays OR Tuesdays and Thursdays)
Location: Online (via Microsoft Teams) **
Duration: 8 weeks

** In order to participate, participants must have access to a working device (e.g., computer, tablet, etc.) with microphone, camera, and internet connectivity.

What people are saying about LDANR’s JUMP Math program:

I just want to let you know that the online experience has been amazing. My son has been so happy and excited to participate. He really likes [the JUMP Program] and he is the one who is always waiting for his session to begin. I am so thankful with all your team and I don’t have words to express my gratitude. Thank you again for all your support. 

-JUMP Math Program Caregiver, Fall 2020

Thank you so much for organizing [the JUMP] program.  We really found it incredibly useful for our daughter.  The tutor was incredible, knowledgeable and built a trusting relationship with Charleigh quickly.  We noticed Charleigh engaging more and more with the activities.

-JUMP Math Program Caregiver, Fall 2020

Our daughter was struggling with reading and math. We participated in reading rocks and Jump. Both programs exceeded our expectations. The volunteers are fantastic and we’ve had nothing but amazing experiences. So thankful programming like this is provided in our area. Our daughter has come leaps and bounds because of these programs and the staff and volunteers.
