This coming Saturday is Pi Day: March 14 (3.14). This is an extra good one, as it is the year 2015, so it is actually even 3.1415! Did you know Pi Day is also Albert Einstein's birthday? Funny coincidence. This week we are reading math books during library time. Saturday, I hope you have some pie and listen to the "Pi Song."
We are beginning the nominees for the Cook Prize. Our first nominee is on fractals, a topic about which I did not know very much. If you have a 3rd- or 4th-grader, you might ask him or her which vegetables grow in a fractal pattern?
Today I was at a program on how our school library can help students meet the Common Core State Standards. It was very interesting and gave me some great ideas that I look forward sharing with the students. Thanks to the district for allowing for the district elementary library media specialists to attend.
The "pocket poem" poster is up! It looks great! Please come by and see it.
