The month of March brings on the Slice of Life Challenge where bloggers are encouraged to post daily about, well, a slice of life from their day. Link up with Two Writing Teachers to read what others post for their Slice of Life daily challenge.
Ok. So I've been struggling to keep up with the daily Slice challenge for March. I've had a lot of evening meetings which shifts everything that needs to be done: dinner, bath, books, bed. The time change (pesky daylight savings) has been tricky this year-Maddie was noticeably off on Monday; in fact, she said to me, "I'm just not feeling myself." All that aside, evenings/nights are when I tend to blog for the day. I'm thinking I need to rearrange things I blog for the next day's posting. I'm open to suggestion about how others manage.
Enough of that. Today was Pi(e) day. The day itself was uneventful. Only one of the teachers at seminar had on a Pi Day t-shirt...a middle school math teacher.
My alma mater posted a picture on Facebook of runners who had a Pi Day run-a 3.14 mile run that began at 3:14. Brilliant! I want to organize one for my school district for next school year.
Maddie is too young to understand Pi, but we went ahead & celebrated with peach pie & vanilla bean ice cream. If nothing else, my husband & I could take about the number of circle related formulas that included the Pi sign. It's amazing how rusty the brain gets when one is not teaching Geometry.
It's days like today that make me miss the classroom. Don't get me wrong-I love to mentor. However, it's these kinds of days that I miss celebrating with students. Who doesn't love pie, but more importantly, who doesn't love celebrating a mathematical symbol. :o)
