3.14159 On March 14 at 1:59 PM we celebrated Pi Day at Parker. We ate pie, of course. And held an assembly where each 3 and 4-year-old announced his or her favorite number and sang a special version of "There were 10 in the bed and the little one said..." It is still running through my head. There were math jokes and tricks and then games and activities afterwards.
When asked, the preschoolers had definite favorite numbers in mind. No question. I realized that my favorite number has always been 25. What's your favorite?
When I asked a couple of middle schoolers if there were any improvements they would make for next year, they said, "More pie. More whipped cream."
