World Math Day and National Grammar Day

March 1, 2010

In a recent e-mail update from Annenberg Media, several upcoming special days were highlighted. Two of these days were World Math Day (March 3rd) and National Grammar Day (March 4th).  Education majors should have received a forward of the full message to their e-mail address that contained links to many of their online videos that apply to these two days.

World Math Day:
(The following is from the Annenberg Media e-mail.)
To participate in World Maths Day, teachers can go to the World Maths Day Web site http://www.worldmathday.com and click on “Register here” to register their class or school by March 1. Students whose schools are not participating may register individually. On the Web site, click on “Guides” for an FAQ, technical guide, posters, and more.

National Grammar Day (March 4)
The following text can be found on the National Grammar Day Web site at: http://nationalgrammarday.com/ The Web site has plenty of interesting links and resources, including a Grammar Day song! Check it out!

National Grammar Day was established in 2008 by Martha Brockenbrough, founder of the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar (SPOGG) and author of Things That Make Us [Sic].

Language is something to be celebrated, and March 4 is the perfect day to do it. It’s not only a date, it’s an imperative: March forth on March 4 to speak well, write well, and help others do the same!

Of course, the CMC and the Library Science Collection have tons of resources to help you celebrate either day in your classrooms. Let us know if you need help finding anything!
