My son's first grade homeroom has only twenty students--but a fair portion of the class can be challenging. I hate to use gender bias, but there are seven girls and thriteen healthy, active boys.
We had a surprise snowstorm and subsequent school cancellation on Thursday. Friday, the last day of school before the two-week Christmas break, was undoubtly hectic as the teachers rushed to play catch-up on all of the projects they wanted to complete before all of the Christmas parties began the last hour of school. Did I mention it was spirit day (which means out of regular uniforms AND a serbert treat). Right after lunch, my son's class has physical education.
