With all the reasons to stress this week, I decided to enjoy the weather and take my students outside to the playground for lunch. It was a picture perfect Florida day. The students thought this was the best day ever! I even had a chance to relax and enjoy the day.
It still amazes me that something as simple as taking my students outside for lunch can excite the class greatly. I remember my teachers spending lunch time with us. It was something to look forward to. Now, I realize what a scarifice it is to give up my quiet lunch. I strongly believe eating lunch with my students is a wonderful way to build a relationship with my students but I do give up my bathroom break and time to check my e-mails. I think it's worth it though. I normally eat lunch with my class on Fridays and I think I have just as much fun as the students do.
