One of my favorite activities all year is just around the corner. World Math Day 2011 starts on Monday!! To help get motivated to beat last year’s scores, the students made their own movie with a sweet montage. If you are feeling like you just can’t do it, take a look at the video below.

The students just recently finished writing stories with other students from Kansas and Turkey. The students were partnered up with 5th graders from across the country and the world. Their objective was to write a story about being caught in a snow storm. The students had to write back and forth until the story was completed. After the story was finished, the students pasted their finished stories into a wordle. The wordle gave the students an idea of what words they were overusing. Take a look at an example below. You can see the other wordles and stories on the writing wiki or on the students’ blogs.
