Hey all, I have some super exciting news!
Math Storytelling Day is on September 25, and to celebrate here on the MathIsEverywhere Blog, we have a special giveaway from children’s author Corey Rosen Schwartz!
Before we hop into it though, Kaylynn Johnsen won the critique in the previous post for most mind-blowing information! Congrats Kaylynn!
Now on to Math Storytelling Day! Never heard of it? No worries! I hadn’t either, but it’ll definitely be a new tradition for my family and classroom.
It was started in 2009 by an amazing woman, Maria Droujkova. According to Checkiday.com, “Maria Droujkova wanted the day to celebrated for her birthday. She said, ‘Tell your math stories—to a friend or on your blog, to your class or to your kid.’ This day celebrates math storytelling in its many different forms.” Isn’t that exciting?! What an awesome idea!!
To win a copy of Corey Rosen Schwartz’s awesome picture book, Twinderella: A Fractioned Fairy Tale, all you have to do is share in the comments what you’d like to do for Math Storytelling Day this year.
