Family Math Night...
I am so pumped!
Yesterday I spent the afternoon making tangrams, running copies, creating a math activities book, and stuffing bags for math kits until the wee hours of this morning. I used to do things like this when I had a class of 20. Now, I get to do it for 250 families (an estimated guess of how many families will come tonight).
My bed never felt so good, thanks to J and the new foam padding he set me up with. (He also got to stuff bags with me, made me dinner, and washed dishes. Bliss!)
I actually woke up a few minutes before the alarm, ready to go. I have quite a full day of tangram making ahead of me before the big event tonight.
For all of you educators, I will post the contents of our math kit after the main event. I think they are pretty stinkin' sweet.
I leave you with the words of Dr. Gary Hall, "Math is easy. Math is fun."
ps-Yes, we were required to write this on top of all our papers in his college math class. He also called his tests "parties."
pss- Oh yeah, $180 has already been donated to my Susan G. Komen 3-Day goal. Scroll on down if you wish to donate!
