Spring Fever

Spring is here and for teachers this means increases in chatter, student distractions, planning placements for next year, transitions (that is a post of its own), and...


The Scream by Edvard Munch
Tiny little chemical messengers within the bodies of these small children have now created chaos and interesting changes to our classroom.  No longer can the kids in the “clubhouse” be a co-ed group.  Googly-eyed stares, blushing cheeks, and frequent visits to check the mirror have taken over.  

How is it that warm weather can create this?  Do the hormones build and travel faster when the sun warms the body?  Does the increased vitamin D from the sun make the hormones go crazy?  Somebody, please tell me.  Also, can I counteract these effects if I keep the classroom at 60 degrees or less?  I’ll wear a sweater and coat all day if it can keep these small little children from becoming teenagers too quickly.  Really, I will!
