It is two weeks before break. We are being asked to do running records on 3 students before we leave and most of us have not done those for many years. We are stressed.

I look at the standards. SO MANY. Testing around the corner and in checking, I wanted to revisit the genre of drama.

I open the lesson and ask my 5th grade class to think and then share what they know about drama. ( never assume anything) So one of my more sensible students raises his hand and matter-of-factly describes drama as “overreacting to things and causing problems for others.” I looked at him and said “OR it can be a form of literature called a play which is acted out on stage.” We both cracked up.

Gotta love those 5th graders.
