Before you judge my
highly advanced technological skills, please remember desperate times call for desperate measures. I must have pressed something on my desktop computer because my document camera no longer works. As there was no AV contact around to fix this, I needed to bring back technology from the 1960s.
I searched high and low in my school for an overheard projector and I eventually found one in a deep, dark corner, dust bunnies and all.
One of my all time favourite books to bring out in October is "It Was Halloween Night...A Scary Math Story-with Tangrams!" by Marilyn Burns and Grace Maccarone, illustrated by Matthew Straub. I know I've had it for a long time based on how I labelled the spine with a happy face orange sticker. That was when I only owned a few books. Sadly, it appears as if this gem of a book is out of print but the concept is easy to duplicate.
freebie that your students can use to trace their creations on. Class book anyone? Get ready to be blown away by what your students come up with. I know I am every single time I bring out this story.
Mrs.Beattie's Classroom and enjoy.
