Last night, our school had "Math Night." It was fine. I wish I could say it was awesome, but in all honesty, I really didn't feel like spending my Tuesday night at school. However, since I had no choice- it was great once I got there.
I love dressing up. We're having a book character dress up day at school in April and I'm already planning what I'm going to wear. (any suggestions?) This year, we all wore lab coats to look more like mathematicians. But, I was wishing that I had been more into the night at the beginning so I had time to make awesome Ms. Frizzle earings. Next time, next time.
In my room, I had set up a game of Battleship Coordinates which is similar to well, Battleship. (You had to say, "You Sank My Line Segment!" if you sunk their ship- hence the blog title.) It got me thinking of all my favorite games growing up. Battleship was not one of them. I loved Life, the Babysitter Club game (oh come on- you owned this game too!), Uno, Sorry and Hungry, Hungry Hippos. That's one of the reasons I love being a teacher- it brings back all those memories of growing up. Especially the good ones like playing games. Any childhood favorite games to share?
