Please come soon. I think everyone is in need of a break, but unfotunetly our break comes at the end of April. Thankfully, Q3 ends this upcoming week and students will get a three day breather. I can tell some of my students are losing steam. It is painful to watch them think sometimes...I can tell they are trying, wheels are turning, but nothing is happening.
I am mostly seeing the lack of steam coming from students that are out in the general education classroom as well as those that are on the verge of being moved out of an ESE class. They have worked so hard and now the engines are slowing down. Learning activities that should be simple are taking longer to complete or even start.
FCAT is just around the corner and now is not the time for a freeze on thinking to happen! In the words of Billy Madison:
We have to work real hard and stick it out until FCAT testing day!
