Is today a double whammy for you? If a Friday the 13th has you avoiding ladders and black cats; well that could be a whammy. What could be the second whammy? That would be a Friday the 13th full moon! Super spooky, right?
I find a full moon mesmerizing. It’s so spectacular! No one has ever suggested that my crazy factor increases during a full moon. I do, however, have teacher friends who swear a full moon brings out the crazies in their kiddos. So is the lunar effect, the idea that there’s some correlation between moon cycles and human behavior, real or myth? Recent research supports the idea that the lunar effect is real. To what extent is still being researched.
Do you observe a change in your kiddos’ behavior (or your own!!) around the time of a full moon?
Curious as always!
PS: FYI—A full moon on a Friday the 13th won’t happen again until August 13, 2049!

Yes, I know they say it isn’t so, but I disagree.
Yes and yes!
No and no. No different than any other day.
My first graders seem to get a little more wiggly and a little louder. It’s a good time to keep them moving.
