"LEARNING CRUNCH TIME - THE HEAT IS ON"

“LEARNING CRUNCH TIME -THE HEAT IS ON”
by
Linda M. Penn

    The presents have been given, the wrapping paper and ornaments boxed up for next year.  You are saying, “Happy New Year” to friends and family.  SORRY, but it’s time to face facts – the kids are going back to school, and you parents and teachers, back to work.  THE HEAT IS ON – IT’S CRUNCH TIME FOR INTENSE LEARNING – TESTING TIME IS AROUND THE CORNER!

    If you are a teacher, you know exactly what I mean.  Testing time comes in the spring and although the calendar says it is a long way off, we teachers know it is the time to feel the crunch to get all appropriate material covered before testing.

    The return to school after the Winter Break was always stressful for me.  I felt the pressure to get the kiddos prepared for the spring testing.  Although it was always exciting to be around the kids again, it was hard to enjoy my work when it seemed all I was doing was teaching to the test.

    I recently heard in the news that the President was advocating for less time spent in American classrooms on testing.  I clapped my hands, did a dance like I had just scored a touchdown, and yelled out, “YES!” 

    To you parents trying to soothe your kids through the intensity of the expected learning, you might want to review my October 1, 2015 Blog entitled  “Time Management for Stressed-out Students.”

    To you teachers, here’s some encouragement:

Take time to ENJOY something each day with the students.
Look to the POSITIVE – find something to be THANKFUL for each day.
SMILE and LAUGH with the kids each day.
Have everyone in the class stand up, take DEEP BREATHS, COUNT TO 10, do 10 JUMPING JACKS.
Do your BEST everyday and take PRIDE in your efforts.

Hope you all have a great 2016!  Come back the first week in February for my Blog – “POETRY – DOES ANYONE READ IT ANYMORE?”

There are some rare occasion which are for the family and that is why that day we should left the parties that we have and spend the time with our family because they are the most important. We can be with friends whenever we want but with family we cannot so think about them also.
