Sometimes the best lessons are the ones not in the plans!
I want to share a spur of the moment math activity my class enjoyed on Friday. One of my students was surprised by her uncle who came to have lunch with her. He is a former University of Georgia basketball player who now plays professionally over seas. The kids were in awe of his height and were bombarding him with questions. So, I invited him back to our classroom to answer the questions and to help us with an on-the-spot math activity. We measured, problem solved, and estimated.
"Teachers make great thieves"...ever heard that quote? It is a very true! Most of our great ideas are "stolen" from someone else. Not all ideas on this blog are mine. I try to give credit where credit is due. However, if you find that an idea should have been given credit but wasn't, please let me know.
