Yeah yeah, you're probably totally getting your panties in a bunch and thinking "She TALKS about holidays?"
Yes. Yes I do. I talk about all of them, as long as the students start the discussion first. I share my thoughts, I listen to their stories. Their stories that are completely alive and moving with excitement and anticipation. I LOVE it.
I also love how we are all, all 20 of us, just dancing in our shoes about our upcoming break. They have such a great spirit. This is the week that my job becomes doubly hard - keeping 19 hyped up 9 year olds still in learning mode at this time of year is just, well, worth the summer break.
I will earn that break in the next 5 school days left until our break. Trust me.
Hang in there, sanity.
