*ePIc Pi Week is *almost* at it’s end – but we’re not winding down yet! Today we have Kim from Teaching Math by Hart and she’s giving us the FULL run-down of her Pi Day Celebration! Even better, along with the ePIc Pi Giveaway – she’s giving away a copy of her Pi Day Celebration activities! *

Hi there! I’m Kim from Teaching Math by Hart, and I am here to tell you that I **LOVE** Pi Day!

I always make it my personal mission to make a big deal out of it, especially this year, as it is going to be EPIC!

Here’s a glimpse at how I celebrate Pi day:

Every year Pi day looks a little different. I’ve celebrated the day simply within my math classes, I’ve celebrated with my whole team, and I’ve also organized the day for a whole grade level. I’ve done small scale and large scale celebrations, and they have always been well worth the organization required. The kids (and teachers) always have a blast!

Here’s just a few of my favorite activities I do with my students throughout the day.

**Pi Memorization**

I don’t think Pi day is complete without a memorization competition. A week in advance I inform students of the competition and provide them with cards with the first 100 or so digits of Pi. I had a student last year blow my class record of 170 digits out of the water, by memorizing 217! My mouth was literally on the floor!

**Pi Facts**

Read interesting facts about Pi to your students throughout the day, or post them around your classroom. If there is time, use these facts to create a short trivia game that students can compete in at the end of the day.

**Pi Challenges**

I do a couple of these throughout the day as quick engagement activities. One activity the kids really enjoy is making a list of all the words they can think of that start with “pi”.

Pineapple… Pieces… Pick…

**“Pi”e Activities**

Pi Day wouldn’t be complete without some actual pie.

Two ideas – pie eating competition, pie throwing auction – enough said!
