This year, lunch seems to be when we switch off learning. Before lunch, I’m on my game, things are working, students are working, progress is being made. After lunch, it can feel like we hit a brick wall and we start a slow slide in thinking and it’s a game of “how little can we do while we wait for the time to run out?”
Maybe it was just a particularly rough day or a crazy fourth period. It felt tougher than normal.
Regroup, rest and revisit the content tomorrow.
