What a timely assignment this is! A sickness has been running through our home, taking out about half of us in one weekend, one right after another! Luckily, neither I nor the baby have been counted among the casualties! But one of my students was! So what did we do?
Absolutely nothing! This is a prime example of why we have chosen to school year-round! We have plenty of “built-in sick days”, not to mention vacation days and I-just-don’t-feel-like-teaching days. It is stressful enough worrying about and tending to a sick child, much less adding to that the worry of lessons and projects. So we just went ahead and took the entire week off. It actually worked out well because I just finished up grades and report cards for our first grading period over the weekend, so it’s nice to take a week off to evaluate and rest.
What do you do on sick days?
