Spring break is just days away. I’ve been holding off starting a countdown because that would just make me want it more. But today? It was inevitable.
Yesterday, I woke up at 6:15. That was hitting my snooze for 15 more minutes after my original alarm went off. Today, I woke up at 6:34. Obviously I snoozed much longer today. I fear for tomorrow, I’m just praying it’s not any later than that or we won’t make it to school on time.
Lexie has been asking for summer since Christmas break (she skipped right over wanting spring break) and Lilah even asked this morning as I was waking her up if it was a “stay at home day”. The kids are feeling it, too.
& my students? Ya. They are done. Put-a-fork-in-them done. Today they took a math test and pretty much bombed it. Perimeter & area. Seriously?! Adding and multiplying. How hard is that? Well, as I tell them, it wasn’t hard, it was just work. And they had no intention on working. If I’m feeling nice I might just give them a five question pop quiz tomorrow in hopes that that will pull up their recent test grade. It’s so frustrating though because I teach & teach & teach and sometimes spoon feed them the information they need (I mean, formulas in their math notebooks that they are allowed to use on the test. Exact examples & step-by-step instructions) and then we still have days like this. & a big state test looming over our heads in just a few short weeks. Oy.
15 school hours to go until we are free for a week. I’ll count down in those hours because there’s a whole heck of a lot less of them between now & Friday afternoon.
