This is a huge thank you to everyone who has shared in the discussion of the calendar.
Your comments have served two purposes. My students first of all have be shown that educated minds find even the questions of a child interesting enough to respond to. (The kids have been amazed at the number of responses) and Secondly, a charged up interest in researching the topic of calendars.
Before teaching to the standards I could never have justified taking the time to follow up on this line of interest. I would have been too busy assigning the next page of calculations and the 7 or 8 worksheets that went with it.
Well, needless to say, we will be spending time not only on large numbers, but also on methods to record time, and some of the other great suggestions given on this list.
Thanks!!
Eileen
