How Excited Are You That It's Monday?!


I'm always at school early, and with the new COVID protocols, the Before Care Program at our school needs to walk the students down our kindergarten hallway to the different classrooms. I always hear the instructors chatting with the kids as they walk. Every Friday, I hear variations of this discussion: "How excited are you that it's Friday?! School is almost over for the week. What are your weekend plans?" While I understand where the instructors are coming from, and I do hear students excited to share about their weekends, somehow this conversation always bothers me. Why?
