The year isn't over yet, and there's still more to teach, but it's nice that they felt good after doing today's bagrut Israeli national high school test. Of course the grades aren't in yet, but those who were tested orally know what they got, and they're happy.
I used to bring homemade cakes to the tests for everyone, but since I no longer have car service, I can't schlepp cakes. I bought them some candies and gave them bags before each test. It's the "little things" that make them feel good.
It was also nice having a "day off" from my regular teaching. I needed it, since I have a cold and there was no way I could have taught my longest day. I probably would have taken sick leave, since I need to be at full-strength to teach my other classes.
The next round of testing is in the spring.
