Have some fun! Take a break! You might need these especially as kids are taking high-intensity tests to help kids refresh and gear back up.
(I am not crazy about the tests but I am crazy about kids. When I feel things getting too intense, I take brain breaks with my students.)
I hope you enjoy this episode with Rob!
