First I needed a cake....and a cake needs candles.
So....if a cake can only have 10 candles how many cakes will we need? GREAT discussions and thinking going on (and yes I bit the bullet and confessed my true age). Then they went to work drawing me some cake.
|This student wanted me to know each of the cakes he made for me. Do you see the ghost cake? He was the most proud of that one. But there was also the heart cake and the chocolate chip one too.|
|They all wanted to know if I was going to blow out the candles. Of course I will....candles have to be lit, don'tcha know?|
After cake we need a party and some party games. What better game than musical chairs?
More good discussion of more, less and the same. We are starting to be more and more comfortable using the word equal!! I LOVE math!
Surprise!! Do we have more students or more chairs? I snuck that one in on them and they were surprised. It was so funny!!
I have just two questions...
Do you celebrate your birthday in class?
What fun things do you do when you are teaching math?
