The doldrums, when discussing physical science, refers to a belt of light winds or calms along the equator. The weather conditions experienced in these sections of the sea were devastating hazards to sailing ships. Now that ships are fitted with engines the doldrums aren’t so fearful, at least at sea. However, if you live in Duluth MN, in February it’s pretty easy to slip into a state of inactivity or stagnation. Many days may be too cold to go outside and play and a classroom of kids can start to get bored. A bored kid is not a receptive kid!
Mr. Carlson has found a way to navigate this annual impediment to learning by having Spirit Week. This year from February 10-13 the kids arrived at school dressed according to the day’s theme.
Tuesday was Hat or Shoes day. The more outlandish, outrageous or outstanding, the better. Same for your shoes, decorated or bedazzled, the wackier the better.
Thursday was Occupation day, or Sports Day and you could dress up as you would for a future job, or dress in your favorite team’s colors.
Hope the rest of your month is filled with warm blessings!
