SPEAK OUT: What Are You Thinking About During School?
We're betting it's not always math, science and history...
We’ve all been there—school has just started after a summer of beaches and relaxation, you’re sitting in a classroom staring out at the still-sunny weather and you start daydreaming.
We all have those moments where our thoughts are not exactly on the subject at hand—whether it’s figuring out how you can put off doing your homework or thinking about how hungry you are.
Everyone drifts off in one way or another in class sometimes, especially as students transition from summer days of sleeping in and lounging by the pool to early mornings in the classroom.
The first day of school is rapidly approaching—Aug. 20 for Prince George’s students and Aug. 27 for Montgomery County’s—and chances are those first few days will prove the hardest to stay focused in class.
When the weather is still warm and the beaches still open, it’s pretty challenging to pay attention to algebra and chemistry (at least, it was for me…).
So, we’re curious. What’s going through your mind when your thoughts start to move away from geometry and toward the door? Tell us your thoughts during school in the comments.
