9-year-old Caine Monroy spent his summer vacation building an elaborate cardboard arcade inside his dad’s used auto parts store. The entire summer went by, and Caine had yet to have a single customer. Then, on the last day of summer, a filmmaker named Nirvan stopped to buy a door handle for his car. Caine asked Nirvan to play, and Nirvan bought a $2 FunPass, becoming Caine’s first customer. Inspired by Caine’s creativity, Nirvan came back to make a short film about Caine’s Arcade and organized a flashmob to surprise Caine with lots of customers. Watch the movie to see what happened, and then watch “Caine’s Arcade Part 2″ below to see what happened next. If you like this story, please share it with friends!
This year I am back working and learning with the students and teachers in POD 1 and it is very exciting.
One of the most amazing things I hear nearly everyday is students saying how ‘great they are at maths and counting!’
I’ve been watching and talking with the kids as they play some math games and explore maths and this has to be one of my favourite games. Kebab maths is a quick game and as you can see in the video below, the kids are very good at both playing the game and explaining whole and parts of numbers.
What is your favourite maths game? Let me know by commenting below. You could do this at home or with your class mates.
