Here in the Southern Hemisphere, we’re right in the thick of report comment writing season. This means that teachers are working harder than ever to keep on top of their daily tasks AND get report comments written in time for their school deadlines too! To provide you with a little brain break (teacher style), here’s a little list of reporting season giggles from some of the finest teaching memes around.
1. Subtext Abounds
There are a few goodies floating around the interweb about what teachers would “really” like to write on some of their report cards. In the interests of keeping this PG rated, I’ve selected this fave from The Hands-On Teacher in First!
2. If Only It Were So Easy…
Julie Andrews has the answer to everything! Not so sure admin teams would be quite so joyful about this approach…
That daily grind (especially at report card writing time) can mask some of the more enjoyable feelings. Until we stop, take a breath, and remember to feel them too!
We write. We cry. We nap. We write. We giggle. We get distracted. We write. And eventually, we get… here.
5. Hey Teacher
What’s a list of memes without this face in it! #thistooshallpass
6. Tick Tock
“…and just a quick reminder that report card comments are due tomorrow, and then edits due next Wednesday…”
7. Extra Buzz
Is the coffee stronger at this time of year, or is it just me?
When “To Do” lists seem just as long, but the tasks on them take so much longer to check off!
9. Sustainable Teaching
Even the best filers amongst us can still feel like this mentally!
10. Seasons Greetings
If there’s one thing that Term 4 report card writing can remind us of, it’s that the real festive season is just around the corner!
11. Stop and See
If there’s one thing we can really take away from this process, let it be the joy of recognising all that your students have achieved with you this year. Academically, socially and emotionally.
Okay, if you’ve enjoyed this little break but need something to get you back on track, you might like to check out our report card comment resources! These should make finding the right words a little bit easier.
