My Easter Break Plans

No, I don't mean lesson plans. But I am just so tired that I plan to do nothing for a few days now that my Easter break will be starting from Monday. I was finished with the report books today. Yay! I'll be giving them out on Friday. I am not sure about getting everything on my Easter vacation list done but here it is:

1. Rest and rejuvenation. Going to the beach.

2. Finding a new hairstyle. Any ideas?

3. Remove a wisdom tooth (surgically, Ahh!). I know I'm an adult but I'm afraid to go to the dentist (don't tell my students). I keep putting this off. Let's hope I don't chicken out this time.

4. Listen to books 5 and 6 of the Outlander series. I think I can do that in two weeks... I have always been a book worm but now I only use Audible. What is Outlander? My #1 way to unwind. If you are curious about Audible, I highly recommend it. Check out this link: Try Audible and Get Two Free Audiobooks

5. Exercise! I badly need it. I like Zumba and aerobics. I just usually cannot find the time to fit them into my schedule. 

6. Re-organize my clutter spaces (which is... everywhere).

7. Get buzy (during the second week). I have lots to do. So I'm giving myself just the first week to relax and the second week to do stuff because there's always work to be done.

So there it is. It may not be spectacular but I sure can't wait for the break!

Free Pi Day Activity - Proving Circumference

Pi Day Activities

Happy Pi Day! I made this free set for you to try out as a Pi Day activity. You students will be comparing the length of a circle’s diameter to its circumference (which will lead to the discovery of Pi and the circumference formula). It might sound complex but this activity makes it easier to these concepts because it allows for a concrete understanding if diameter, Pi and circumference. It is created for two different sizes of circles; for the 7cm diameter circle and for the 14cm diameter circle. All dimensions are in cm (metric) units. It also contains posters which show the many different ways of representing Pi. It's a free download that you can access right here from my Teachers pay Teachers collection.

About Me

My Photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
