OMG! Can you believe it? We just celebrated “math day” in our school today! I mean who celebrates “maths”?? I really don’t get the point nor have I ever heard of any school celebrating it. Being a hardcore maths hater, I was all negative uptill today morning. The principal had declared no classes will be conducted and that the whole day, maths activities were to be carried out!
The only part of the day that I was looking forward to, was my dance during the assembly. We did hip hop and contemporary – incorporating maths elements into the dance. I was all in doubt when we first heard what had to be done. Maths in dance? Who are they kidding!! But it turned out to be real fun! All thanks to the amazing choreographer-dancers that we have in our school.
Anyway, I may have been slightly(okay, majorly) wrong about how today was going to be. It was nice, different. We played bingo and crossword. The bingo, instead having numbers, had all sorts of maths related stuff in small boxes – like different shapes, formulae, angles, signs and so on. Cool, right!? And guess what? I won 2nd place for full house! YAAY. The crossword also had clues for math terms. It was a good break from the monotony of classes.
The dance was great! Everybody said so. Apart from a minor screw up(it doesn’t really count as it wasn’t anybody’s fault) – it was perfect. All the hard work that each one of us put in, paid off. And thanks to the screw up – it would be day to remember. I am sure, nobody will forget our dance that easily. Now am waiting to see the photos that were taken by some professional guy. Sigh. I will very much miss the not-so-intense practice hours where we danced, bunked classes and goofed around loads. Dance, I Love You!
