I wish fall would just hurry up and get here! I’m spending another October Sunday in summer clothes as its supposed to be 85 degrees in Sacramento. As a California native, I’m one of those strange people (according to all my Midwestern and New England friends) who has never lived in a place where it snows. I wonder what it would be like to be snowed in? Sounds like fun! I’m quite envious of my friends who get to bundle up during the winter. Here, bundling up consists of a coat and a long sleeve shirt. The best I can do is fake paper snow flakes, so today I’ve been having a little fun making my own snowflakes on Snow Days. I figured there must be a mathematics lesson in here and sure enough I found some great ideas for using paper snowflakes in the classroom on Dan Meyer’s blog. Mental note for me…use this right before Christmas break…okay back to work now!
