This is a fabulous week for both mathematics and vocabulary!  This week is Palindrome Week.  What’s that mean, you ask?  Simple!  A palindrome is a word or phrase which reads the same in both directions (mom, dad, stats, Hannah).  A palindromic number or numeral palindrome is a number that remains the same when its digits are reversed.

See, for vocabulary…..we learned the word palindrome.  And for math we learned about digits and reversal.

Clearly I am not the only one who is excited by this.  There are several books and even an app on Amazon that are about palindromes.  Check out:

In the end I have this to say….yes, I am a big dork!!! My girls love palindromes and constantly tell me when the time is the same forward and backward.  Teaching about numbers is a fun activity in our house.
