Dragons, and Medicine, and Pi, Oh My!!

This is the first year of my eleven years of teaching that we will actually be in school on Pi Day!! Pi day, for those of you non-math geeks folks, is March 14. March 14 is Pi Day because Pi, the ratio of the circumference of a circle and its diameter, is 3.14. Get it March (the third month) and the day 14. Pretty cute, right? Well because this is my first, I’m going to do it up right!! I’m not exactly sure what I am going to do for sure, but I know it will involve the amazing book by Cindy Neuschwander, Sir Cumference and the Dragon of Pi, some fried pies, and lots of activities!!! I’m so excited, I can hardly wait!! In honor of this great day, I decided to make some activity handouts with cute dragon graphics on it. This activity is one I’ve done for a couple of years in my class, and seems to be one that a lot of my followers look for on my blog site. I made it a freebie so that everyone can enjoy it!! I will have a link of it here on this post, and it will also be available on my Teachers Pay Teachers Store for free. I hope you enjoy it!! I will have more posts in the next coming days with more Pi Day activities!! Come back soon!! Below are a couple of screen shots of the activity, and below those is the actual link to the full activity.

    I just love your blog. I wanted to become a follower but I do not have a Twitter account. Maybe you should have a button for those of us who want to be followers but don’t have facebook or twitter. Anyway, I have nominated your blog to receive the Calculating Heart Award. Head on over to my blog for the details and to grab your award.

      I’m so glad you love my blog!! I am so glad you asked about following! If you’ll notice that when you are on my blog, on the bottom right side of your screen, there is a button that moves with you as you scroll that says “follow”. If you’ll click that, it takes you to the “subscribe” page and will ask for your e-mail address. It will send you an e-mail with a link to verify your e-mail address. After you verify your e-mail, you receive an e-mail every time I add a new post. Thank you for the award! I will head to your blog right now!!
