I was teaching months to third graders today with a young, male teacher who I think is a little afraid of me.
I went through the months asking “who has a birthday in ~ ?” and marking the number of students who had birthdays in each month.
At the end, the teacher and I looked at the results and he said “many students have birthday in May.”
At the exact same time we both started quietly counting backwards from May to find out what had happened nine months previously.
We hit August, nodded at each other and went back to teaching.
