It has been a crazy busy day!
It started off great with opening my advent calendars. We won’t talk about how many yarn advent calendars I have🤣
It continued to be great when my behavior student was away- the tension in the room instantly melts away! It was also a lovely morning as we started the day making cards for seniors with our buddies. My students love their buddies!!
My lunch break was improved By my tea advent calendar. I splurged and shared a bird and blend tea advent with my teaching buddy. It was super expensive but the first two days have been wonderful- Christmas cranberry pie and mulled cider.
I got my report card final changes made during my prep. We finished the book Stuart Little and so began watching the movie with our lunch and ended the day doing gym with the other grade 1/2 class.
The best moment came after school though! I had Bookclub with the grade 3/4/5 students. We had 22 kids show up today which was wonderful! As we went around the circle letting kids give their opinion of the book, one kid I taught in grade one (I’ve taught 90% of these kids at some point) said that he remembered my talking about how when I read a book, I see it like a movie in my head and that’s what the book was like for him. Awww a kid actually remembered something I said!!! It was such a great moment as most of the time it feels like the kids forget all about grade one and two when they get to higher grades.
After that I dropped some books off that I had sold, went for a short run (finally!), had my eyebrows and eyelashes dyed and picked up groceries.
I finally got my advent knitting done. I am only knitting using one yarn calendar right now. I am knitting the Land of Sweets cowl with my Wool Interrupted advent, however, I am knitting two of them concurrently- one for me and one for my mom. Even with knitting two, I still have yarn left over🙄
I’m going to need to come up with another plan, but right now, I need sleep.
