Of course I love when it stays light later in the day. Who doesn't?
But I really hate getting up in the dark. It just started getting somewhat less than dark when the alarm goes off, and that really helps the most difficult part of my day. But now we're back to darkness again. I rarely leave school until 5:30 - 6:00, so it's dark when I get home. Now it will be almost dark. I'm not sure I get any benefits from this!
And the kids are so cranky after the time change! Well, there are some that adjust fine, but there are others that take a couple of weeks for their little bodies to adjust to springing forward!
A little explanation helps. This video is a little above the heads of my second graders, but I think I'll try it anyway, since there's some good stuff.
Tomorrow we'll be returning after a snow day. We'll be wrapping up our Read Across America week, and doing some work with St. Patrick's Day, one of my favorite holidays of the whole year!
Just a little something in honor of St. Patty's Day: 10% off everything in my Teachers Pay Teachers and Teachers Notebook stores! Take a look at some of the things you can get for your kiddos!
