Yesterday was my first full day of school since February 13 due to snow days and delayed openings. It was so nice to get back into a regular routine! I was excited to see my students seamlessly slide back into our routine without missing a beat. Plus, I missed my kids!
I asked students to write about the snow days and several of them stated emphatically that they didn’t like all the snow days that we’d had. One student complained of being stuck and home and missing her friends at school, while another student wrote that she didn’t like the snow days because if you’re not at school, you miss learning. While there were students who wrote about building snowmen, having snowball fights, and going sledding, not all of them celebrated the impromptu vacation.
Hopefully, we have a full week of school, although the forecast for Thursday sounds a little problematic with the possibility of some more snow. However, I’m going to try not to think about Thursday. Instead, I’m going to enjoy today and tomorrow with my kids!
