Just another day of getting things done.


My students mastered printing v and w and hard and soft c today, or at least they were introduced to it:). It would be so amazing to be able to just input things into children’s brains and know they got it!

We had an environmental play come today that the children loved.

We watched a Bill Nye the Science Guy movie about matter this afternoon and then we had centres. Not a bad day😀

I didn’t feel great from 11am on and my co-teacher said I had a fever. I’m not sure what I got, but I’m going with nothing because I’ve been sick enough this school year!!!!

We had a reveal of a new sign that is in our foyer. It’s a saying that my mom sent me a few months ago and I really like it. I think it’s a great quote to have our students see every day!! What is even better is that it’s been translated into Braille and so can be a tribute to a little girl we lost earlier this year, who had made an impact on a lot of people in our school community. We are not allowed to have a memorial at the school for her, so this was our way of remembering her:)

I finished my report cards after school🎉🎊. I like when I’m at this point as now I can start wat bing for specific behaviors or specific children and tweak the reports as I need to:). It’s really perfect timing as my mom arrives tomorrow and I know she’s just dying to read them as they’re so riveting🤣🤣🤣


The mission today was to run for sixty minutes, but I ended up doing this as a walk as I still wasn’t feeling great. I got in just in time as the rain started soon after.

This walk was enough to put me back into first place on my team:). I really don’t know how this is happening though!


I’ve made some progress on my Bookclub book- Carnegie’s Maid by Marie Benedict. I am on page 58 of 272. Will I finish by Friday???

So far I am enjoying it:)

Well that’s it for me today.

Have fun!

    1. He’s so good at explaining science concepts. My students don’t get a lot of movies but they do get Bill Nye and Magic School Bus for each science unit

  1. The sign is really cute! Also Bill Nye the Science Guy was my favorite videos when I was in elementary school. So much better than listening to a teacher hahah.

    I can’t wait to here your thoughts on the book! I love Downton Abbey so I feel like I would like this.

    1. Lol my co teacher and I were just commenting on the fact the children will sit perfectly still and engaged for a half hour Bill Nye video, but not for us🤣🤣🤣

  2. That’s a beautiful sign. I love what it says. It’s also very true to adulthood and life in general. 🙂

  3. I love that sign! It should be hanging in every school everywhere!😊 Congrats on finishing your report cards! Great job AJ! Hope you aren’t getting sick again! Feel better!💖😊

    1. I think that sign should be everywhere!!!
      Thank you- I always feel so much better when I have something I could send home!
      I hope I’m not too!

      1. Yes, they are. When I worked at a medium-sized law firm, before my boss and I went out on our own, I did a quote every morning for everyone in the office. Took a quote and paired it with a nice photo and sent it out. I continued that even after we left for the longest time, but stopped after working from home. I do enjoy quotes and that is why I use them in some of my post.

      2. I would love to find a quote for my big empty wall. The one I live by is “tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet”

    1. I love the sign too:)
      I’m getting there and I’ll definitely talk about it, but probably not until tomorrow or Sunday.
