Pop Quiz: Did you bring enough for the whole class?
So if the Pop Quiz is late again that’s because it’s my BIIIIIIRTHDAY! I even got a cake! In a meeting!
Having a summer birthday, I never really got to celebrate my loops around the Sun in the classroom. The thing to do back then was for the parent of the kid whose birthday it was to bring a whole lot of donut holes, enough for the whole class. Nowadays, with so many dietary restrictions and childhood allergies, I can’t imagine that is always allowed. And you have to be sure to be fair to all the kids, which our parents usually did, and bring enough for the whole class. Then what about the summer birthdays! The weekend kids! Is it fair to them to not celebrate? Do they get a special donut day?
Do you have birthdays in your classroom? What were classroom birthdays like in your classes when you were a kid? How do you celebrate when you have to be at work nowadays?
The Pop Quiz is a question posed to you, the Scholars of Doubt. Look for it to appear Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 3pm ET. ish.
