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!

  1. Glad your resting place has been made more comfy! But sounds like you are staying too busy to enjoy it. ;0) Looking forward to your info on math night. Our "Edible Math" night was cancelled last week due to tornado warnings. "We" ahem, were really looking forward to cheez-its, skittles...in the school cafe, but "luckily" it will be rescheduled. Love YOU! BETH!!
