I woke up this morning just dragging:(. All I could think all day was, “it’s almost knit night”.
I have to show off the math my grade ones do. During calendar each morning the students have to come up with ways to make the number of days we’ve been in school. I’m not sure if I’m just not remembering or if these students really are slightly advanced in math. It seems like they do more difficult equations than I’ve had in the past!
This morning, the two grade one classes did Writer’s Workshop together. It went amazing! We discussed all the different types of writing you can do; lists, cards, reports, directions, poems, stories, etc. It was so neat to see what each student chose and most of them managed to write more than they did last week! It was also amazingly quiet for having 41 children in one room!
LOL I had a student get a paper cut today and gave him a bandaid. It turned out it was a Mickey Mouse bandaid which he showed off to other kids in the class. Well, needless to say, I am cleaned out of bandaids now. It’s amazing how dangerous paper is in my class!
The grade ones again played the clapping game today for a warm up in gym. I learned on Monday that a warmup doesn’t always have to be running. Two girls offered to demonstrate it.We also tackled an animals in winter mini book this afternoon which went surprisingly smoothly. It’s great to see how far my students have come in reading already!
My tea today was David’s Tea: The Big Chill. It was actually really good! I didn’t find it to have a super distinctive flavour like my favourite, Forever Nuts, but I also didn’t need to pour it out either.
Today after school I had bootcamp at school. It seemed deadly, but maybe it was just my low energy. There were a lot of new moves though. We did 20 second/ 10 second tabatas of: super narrow & deep single leg lunges, single leg lunge hops, lateral runs through an agility ladder, diamond squats, suicides, plank knee tucks using the sliders, hamstring curls on the stability ball along with a double crunch on the ball, mule kick to frog jump, plank punches, bear walk, ISO squat with an overhead press, single leg press with the band and a lat pull down with the band, star jumps, and crab dips & kicks.
I was definitely working hard, but was disappointed that I just didn’t have any “get up and go” today:(
I ran home tonight to try and finish tidying my house as Brenda was coming over for knit night. I had a plan for a baby sweater using chunky yarn, but I didn’t have the right size of needles:( Amazing when I have so many pairs of needles. Then I tried to start a cute sweater, but I didn’t have the right size of needles for it either:(. Looks like a trip to my LYS is in store. Let’s just hope I can behave myself this time and stay away from the sale basket!!!I’ve ended up just doing a seed stitch Cowl out of the super bulky yarn as it’s for the third quidditch match in HPKCHC.
Brenda brought over the first Harry Potter movie tonight so at least I can now say I’ve seen one! I’ve read all the books eight times, but have never seen any of the movies. We’re going to try and work our way through them over the next eight weeks. I liked the first one as it mainly followed the book:).
Well, that’s all for me today.
