It was quite a nice day:)
I have no prep period on Friday so it was just me and the children all day. This morning we started our Friday Journal which is something new I’m doing this year. We brainstormed all we had done this week and they then had to write the sentence, “the best thing this week was…”. My grade 2s has to copy off the board but my grade 1s got a sticky note to copy. I was super persnickety about spelling, spacing and printing, but I am very happy with how it turned out!!! I haven’t decided if we’ll write the same thing every week or not.
After recess we had gym by ourselves. I have noticed that a lot of the children can’t run for very long so we are doing run/walk intervals to start Friday gym to build stamina. We then played Dead Nugget. All were huffing, puffing and red by the end!
This afternoon we had buddy time with our big buddies. The children did an interview of each other. It was neat as I have taught most of the 4/5s too, so very cool to spend time with them again. I also learned during this time that “gh” is silent when it follows a vowel. I hadn’t realized there was a rule around that.
I met up with some current and past colleagues for drinks and dinner. My Shrimp Thai noodle salad was pretty good:) It was great fun to catch up!
However, it was also awesome to come home to my couch as I’ve been super tired today. I am just trying to finish up “The Little Paris Bookshop” for Bookclub tomorrow.
There hasn’t been much today. My usual walk to and from school that I don’t actually count as exercise and some ab work. I guess it’s a day off for me.
I’m back to reading.
