When my brother, sister and I were young, our Grandmother played Yahtzee with us. It was really fun but challenging for us kids. Lots of good memories. :)
Weeeeeel-l-l-l, it's official ~ we're having a snow day. In fact, I was surprised to hear on TV that Governor Deval Patrick in Massachusetts had called a state of emergency and called for the National Guard to bve ready to be deployed. Apparently there are many power outages there. We're only about 25 miles away from Massachusetts, but thankfully we still have power.
Thus ends the first week back to school after Christmas vacation. (well...tomorrow anyway) It has been a roller coaster for sure! The break was nice but it was nice to get back to school too. It really threw my student for a loop though. It is weird, kids need stability and predictability, yet the system is set up to pressure them to adapt quickly to change and tough transitions. Kids are expected to simply bounce back from all the time off school and 'get back in the groove' quickly.
