We Are Teachers has a humorous (and relevant) article about spring. Teachers know spring is a tough time of year with all the testing, stress from preparing through winter break, and finishing up things by the end of May/June. Click on the link and read.
My favorite numbers on the list are numbers 2 (simple tasks are too hard), 4 (“Why not?” is the go-to answer), and 6 (Re-adjust grading methods). Number 3 (long days, short weeks) seems especially true for me.
If I could add one more sign, I’d add one about knowing when a full moon is by the behavior of your students.
Which numbers are your favorites? What would you add?
