It was just as they predicted.
Whoosh! Second graders careened down the hallway heading for the classroom, dodging kindergarteners like bad guys in a video game.
Splash! An overflowing water bottle gushed over two desks, soaking all the papers on top.
Boing! Student after student jumped from a seat with question after question, too distracted to focus on…anything.
Auugh! A panicked student with a nosebleed searched frantically for Kleenex while simultaneously trying not to move or drip.
Sheesh! After countless reminders to please “respect your neighbor” during the math test, one anguished teacher implored with her class to settle in their work.
Rush! The classroom emptied in record time as anxious students ran for the door at the dismissal bell, with a whirlwind of papers, homework, and lunch notes behind them.
It’s so true–March really did come in like a lion!
