Pi Day! I am not a math teacher, but I wish I were…on Pi Day! I am not a fifth grade teacher, but I wish I were…on Pi Day!
On Pi Day, the fifth grade math teachers celebrate with Pi activities and … PIE! The students bring in PIEs that are shared with their classmates and while they participate in Pi activities, they eat PIE!
Every year I think that I should bring in some Pi activities, maybe celebrate the fact that Pi is the homophone of PIE! and while my students share their PIEs! (with me too, of course!) we can study homophones of all sorts. That way, as a language arts teacher, I too can appreciate Pi Day!
After all…Pi is transcendental and I know my love of PIE transcends my love of Pi! What better way to mark this day?
As my now adult daughter used to say as a toddler, “Mmmm! PIE!”
