Teaching Circumference With Help From Sir Cumference

Every now and then I like to confuse my students by beginning a math lesson with a read-a-loud.  It's always so funny to see their faces.  The truth is, there are a lot of good stories out there that can help students better understand math concepts.  One example is the Sir Cumference series by Cindy Neuschwander.  Her books are perfect for helping students understand difficult math concepts.  My students have a much better concept of Pi then I did at their age, and I know it's because of her books.  I created this Free Lesson For "Sir Cumference and The First Round Table".  This two day lesson helps students understand the concept of Pi, along with diameter, radius, and of course circumference.

Enjoy!
