This month the Math Mondays Blog Hop
is all about Pi Day.

I love Pi Day! Last year was the ultimate Pi Day, but I have
already seen t-shirts and signs that refer to “rounding up” this Pi Day.
3.14.16! ;)

I have 4 ideas to share that will
make your Pi Day a blast!

1 – Invest in “pi pencils”

A few years ago, my colleague and I
invested in a few boxes of pi pencils.
Purchase them on Amazon here.

They make a great little gift for
your math students or use them as prizes.

I invested in this amazing resource
from MissMathDork. Inform your students
all about pi in a fun, interactive way.

3 – Tell a corny joke

Now you can go all out like I love
to tell jokes with a colleague over the loudspeaker during morning announcements. Or if that’s not really your style just share
a corny joke with your students or write it on the front board.

“What do you get when you divide the
circumference of a jack o’lantern by its diameter? Pumpkin Pi!”

4 – Engage students in some Pi
Day trivia

I love to ask my students some neat
trivia questions. Did you know Albert
Einstein was born on Pi Day in 1879?

Love all of these fun ideas!!! Thank you for sharing and I appreciate humor in the classroom ;)

ReplyDeleteGotta go get those pencils. How clever. Thank you for sharing.

ReplyDeleteCool recommendation on the pencils, I really like that! How many kids will have memorized pi to 50 digits after that! Nice post!

ReplyDeleteExcellent resources and ideas! Amazon did not have the pencils, ordered from Etsy. Can't wait to give to my students. Thanks!

ReplyDeleteSo glad you were able to find them! The kids love them! :)
