Back in the day when I was in elementary school we had drills! Math drills, writing drills, spelling drills...oh yeah, and fire drills and earthquake drills (I always looked forward to earthquake drills, cause you got to get under your desk!).
Now that I STILL go to elementary school :) ---they have the above mentioned drills with a few added bonuses... now elementary schools have lock down drills (yeah, real fun trying to explain to an autistic 4th grader why we have lock down drills without scaring the 1st graders who were also in the library at the time). Another added bonus MY students get are braille drills!!!
What is the world coming to?
