Math Days are enriching and motivating for students. I like to have an across-the-curriculum math day about once a month on a Friday. Fridays just need to be a little different! Allowing students to be immersed in math skills across the curriculum helps them better understand math as they see it used in such a wide variety of ways. You can take photos of the students engaged in the different activities. The following week have the students write about what was going on in the photos. We put these pages into a class book which we keep at the math center. Needless to say these books get read and reread often.
