大嘴君:昨天是二十四节气中的大雪,生活在南方的我们还安好,不过美国国土的北部地区下起大雪来那可不是开玩笑的。今天的这个故事,讲的就是小怪物和家人朋友们度过一个非常开心的Snow Day的故事。


美国国土的纬度总体比中国高,遇上寒冬,北部地区下起大雪来那可不是开玩笑的。随便来两张雪景感受一下:

这时孩子怎么上学呢,答案是——不上学。所以每到大雪天就像过节一样,全校上下一片欢腾,曾经一位特有才的校长是这么发布雪天停课通知的,听着也是醉了~~


这种幽默娱乐精神真值得每位校长学习。话说遇上灾害天气就停课会影响学习吗?其实也不会,因为学校每年的课程计划里已经早有准备。美国每个学区在做课程计划时,都会留几天Bad Weather Makeup Days(“恶劣天气补偿日”)。


其实这就像我们平时所说的,做计划要留些buffer,Bad Weather Makeup Days相当于一年学习计划的buffer。咱们平时和孩子做计划时也可以参考这个思路。


不过孩子们来说,才不管什么Bad Weather呢,下雪放假就敞开尽情玩耍,如果哪年气候温和,到了“Bad Weather Makeup Day”放假,就像天上掉馅饼一样。


今天的这个故事,讲的就是小怪物和家人朋友们度过一个非常开心的Snow Day的故事。
