Today, I had the kids fill out a Who am I? sheet. I didn’t get too many surprises. It didn’t even surprise me when one of them tried to answer every question with “IDK”. lol I’m going to have them fill one out at the end of every school year. If I remember. lol I think it will be fun to look back every year and see how much they have changed.
As I’ve mentioned before, we don’t take a long summer break. This is a nice article, Summer Help or Hindrance. I find a long summer vacation more of a hindrance.
