Classroom SOL challenge click here
Introduction: Hello and welcome to my blog! This is the third year I have participated in the SOLSC and also the third year for my students as well! I teach students, ages 11-14, in a multi-age classroom at The Logan School for Creative Learning in Denver, CO. This year, I am hosting students from all three middle school classes and they are participating on a volunteer basis (with a few prizes thrown in for inspiration). I'm looking forward to being part of this amazing community again!
Where is my Hour?
Springing forward has always been harder for me than falling back. It used to be about losing that hour of sleep because I would stay of to watch SNL anyway and then be extra groggy the next day. Plus, the fact that an hour just disappeared makes me incredulous and I have issues with which hour they choose to cut. Shouldn't we make that hour disappear on Friday afternoon after lunch but before dismissal instead of making our weekends shorter?
But now, my biggest issue is how dark it is in the morning when I wake up. The past two weeks, I've been getting used to the daylight greeting me as I stumble downstairs to start my day. Not full sunlight by any means, but it's been light enough to clearly see across the yard and identify colors. Since the light is there to greet me, it feels like I'm not getting up in the middle of the light.
