My little cutie Pi s!At circle time, we thought about things that were circles,
told some Pi jokes ,
a limerick (VIDEO),
and listened to and learned Pi songs.
Lunch (inspired here.) was a pizza Pi, served with PInapple! I know there are Pi books out there, but we just read books from our math shelf. For play time, we learned that the distance around the edge of circle is called the circumference and the distance across the circle through the center is called the diameter.
I made a "circle" in the middle of the floor with painters tape, and the boys walked around the circumference, measured the diameter of it and other circles, and then we talked about which part is shorter. (This activity and much more found here.)
We found Pi in the Bible (1 Kings 7:23) and watched Cyberchase, Spheres of Fears. (Both suggested by Almost Unschoolers-be sure to check out all her math activities, they're awesome!)
At worksheet time, I tried again (with no luck) to get B to say "circle" and let him play with the pattern beads.
Meanwhile, W did a pi(e) pattern worksheet (from Pi day at Helping Little Hands).
Our day was as "sweet as pie", but it's not over yet! Tonight, we'll fill our "pie hole" with chicken pot Pi
and Pi(e) cupcakes! (Found here- Click for tutorial and much better pictures!)
