At the elementary school I worked at a few years ago, I chose adjectives to describe each day of the week and I'd write it on the morning message each day. In typical first grade fashion, we had magical Mondays, terrific Tuesdays, wacky Wednesdays (because the students arrived an hour later, so teachers could attend meetings and engage in professional development), thrilling Thursdays and fun Fridays. Although there came a time when I stopped using the adjectives, Mondays remain my favorite day of the school week.
Mondays anchor my students with familiarity on a day when they are rested. If I could duplicate Mondays and have five of them each week I would in a minute. I wonder if I am the only member of the magical Monday fan club?
