We had our first "Mad Dog Math Day" with indoor and outdoor activities centered around math. We had a "steal the bone game" outdoors in which lines of first graders tried to be the first to steal the bone if the number problem ended up with their number. We had a variety of indoor math activities. We also had "Mad dog chow" and munchies at the end of the day. Corn Dogs helped with the dog theme for a snack. Students wore long dog-like ears with their own dog name which became their name for the day. One student's mom reported he wore th ears home and all evening kept them on until bedtime. He even wore them out shopping with his mother. The students loved it and behavior problems were at a minimum.
