As some of you may know, I work at a school that has a modified calendar. Currently we are having intersession, which is basically like summercamp with SOLs mixed in. This is optional, and kids have to pay if they want to come. Well, Unlimited and I are teaching a class together about interior design. The students are allowed to make their dream room, and will present it to their peers next Friday.
So today we are hard at work, when it comes time for recess. I make the announcement "Start cleaning up, we have recess in two minutes." Then I hear groaning from the class. Actual groaning! Then a few of them look up from their work and say, "Do we have to go? I'd rather stay here, I don't want to play."
