Conversations #125 - Blizzard Bags and Snow Days

58:46 minutes (53.8 MB)

With the impending snow heading our way,  Maria and Sheila talked about the possibility of a snow day! Snow days have to be made up at the end of the school year to meet the state's requirements. What if the students were able to do the school work at home and have the work count as a day of school. Some schools have implemented 'Blizzard Bags.'   

Lisa is still 'on leave' and we hope she will be able to return soon and add to the conversation!

This week Maria and Sheila talked about caring in our classroom/school and entrusting students to our care (in relation to the Sandy Hook school shootings). (Lisa was unable to join us for the show this week.)

This week marked our first day back after our summer hiatus.  We spent the time talking about the learning we did over the summer and how the start of the school year has been going.  We got into a brief discussion about how important we are to the atmosphere of the classroom.  We will return to this topic at a later date.
