Please tell me why anybody who has ever worked with kids or in schools would ever create a half day of school?
The kids are so wound up that I waste half the time repeating everything twice or three times. We eat lunch at 10:30. The rest of the time I'm running around like a madwoman trying to get as much as I can in 2 hours, don't forget while I'm repeating everything multiple times.
Honestly, is it really worth it?
I swear a half day can feel like a day and a half sometimes.
Snow days and the day before holiday breaks...not better, but at least I'm excited about those too!!!
