OKC Thunder/ Dallas Mavs Game 2 Statistics Activity

After watching my beloved OKC Thunder smoke past the Dallas Mavs in game 2 of the postseason games, I decided to make a little activity. I made it so that you could use it whether you are a Dallas fan or an OKC fan. This activity includes a page that I included the statistics for the starters on each team. The actual activity has students write the Field goals made/ attempted (FGM/FGM), the 3 points made and attempted (3PM/ 3PA), and the free throws made and attempted (FTM/FTA) as a fraction, decimal, and as a percentage. A second page has students list the best to worst scorers in each of those categories. I haven’t used this in my class yet, but am planning to next week after we finish our “Time Me” activity this week.

My students are absolutely loving the “Time Me” activity. This weekend I will publish a post with pictures of them enjoying themselves. Look back in the archives for that post to download the freebie! It is a must for end-of-the-year activities!

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.
