CLOCKS CHANGE - Extra snack and sleep needed!
Clocks spring forward Sunday, March 12th. The good news is that we will not spend as much time in the dark. The hard news is that it is more difficult to get up an hour earlier. I find students need extra snacks on those first few days. Being tired makes them a bit hungrier.
PI π PIE
Tuesday is Pi π Day. It is March 14th.
March 14th is 3/14 and 3.14 is the first part of the math numbers in Pi π
5S will celebrate this mathematical day
related to decimals and geometry by singing and reciting the digits of pi and eating pie. Students are welcome (but not required) to bring in pies (no nuts please.)
We might end up with a snow day, and if we do, we will celebrate Pi day on Wednesday. Below is information about PI- who knew so many people had such creative ways of thinking about it.
