World Maths Day

On March 1st, our school was lucky enough to participate in World Maths Day. I am proud to say that 2 of our classes placed in the top 20 in the world. Although, we didn't participate online in our Sr-Kindergarten class, we focused our day around math activities. One thing that the students loved was math game rotation. Each class visited all 4 classrooms for different math activities. The activities were all so much fun the the students think it is "cool" to visit their friends classrooms. Each teacher's activity was different and the one I chose to use was a web site named Toy Theatre. I put the site on the SmartBoard and the boys were able to work in teams to to solve the problems. If you haven't checked out Toy Theatre, it is a must. There are wonderful games for many subject areas. We use it frequently! If you aren't signed up to do World Maths Day, check it out. It is a great learning experience and all your students will be so excited to compete with their peers from all over the world!
