CMOM Celebrates the Summer of UMIGO!
Join CMOM and UMIGO as we kick off the Summer of UMIGO on National Summer Learning Day, Friday, June 19, 2015. CMOM, along with children's museums and libraries across the country are joining together to help combat that “summer slide.”
UMIGO has partnered with the National Summer Learning Association (NSLA) for the kick-off of this annual national advocacy day, led by NSLA, to elevate the importance of keeping kids learning, safe, and healthy each summer. National Summer Learning Day is supported by elected officials and policymakers, public agencies, nonprofit organizations, schools, universities, museums, libraries, and summer camps across the country. This year, NSLA will work with partners such as UMIGO to reach a goal of serving 700,000 youth nationwide with summer learning opportunities. You can find a location close to you by looking on the NSLA’s interactive map at SummerLearningDayMap.org.
The Summer of UMIGO will provide children with hands-on, tactile experiences that mirror the content found at UMIGO.com. For parents, it raises awareness of the importance of informal learning, and directs them to free resources available in your area and on the UMIGO website. Discover the wild and wacky world of UMIGO; online appisodes that feature the adventures and mishaps of Bit, Bean and Dizzy – three outrageous and adventurous best friends! Enjoy a day of UMIGO-themed programming that will get your little ones excited about math. Stop by to build a tower of UMIs (the gang’s cute little helpers!) or learn about 2-D shapes by creating a sculpture using pipecleaners and straws!
UMIGO at CMOM
CMOM is proud to present UMIGO, a cross media math experience funded by a Ready to Learn Grant from the U.S. Department of Education. UMIGO is available to you and your family through an interactive touch screen “You Make It Go” kiosk located on our fourth floor. There, the world of UMIGO is yours to explore at the swipe of a screen through multi layered appisodes.
Each appisode is a multimedia experience that combines funny, character driven stories, leveled game play and music videos. As they play, users will follow the adventures and mishaps of Bit, Bean and Dizzy – three outrageous and adventurous best friends. Children become active participants in the story and use their math skills to solve the gang’s biggest problems.
Stop by the “You Make It Go” kiosk to explore each appisode and to pick up additional information as well as extended UMIGO learning materials for at-home use produced by CMOM and approved by national mathematics experts!
UMIGO in the Classroom
Aligned with the Common Core Standards for Mathematics, UMIGO is a fun and engaging way to supplement learning that is already taking place in the classroom. Children process and master topics at a personalized pace; creating the building blocks to future learning. By presenting material in an exciting way, UMIGO builds a positive association with math and allows children to build the self-efficacy and confidence necessary to become effective problem solvers. Best of all new appisodes are being released every few months, ensuring fresh and interesting content for both kids and parents to enjoy.
