I’m almost afraid to see I had another great day in case I jinx myself!
We managed to get printing down, introduced patterns (probably my best math lesson ever), and did some wonder questions about Fall. I had one child away who was diagnosed with autism today, but it was just a great day!
I was super impressed with their “wonders”. I think this is the best it has ever turned out for me!
I finished The Unlucky Lottery Winners of Classroom 13 by Honest Lee.
This book outlines how the teacher and children of classroom 13 share a 28 billion lottery win and don’t learn anything.
The book is a very easy read and I think boys in grade three would find it funny. It is very surface with no deeper thinking required. There is minimal character development as you get just the main characteristic of each student and some are quite stereotypical. It is simply a listing of what each student does with the money. It does however outline what happens to many lottery winners.
I picked my mom up after work and she kept me company as I did my errands. It’s not exciting but it’s quality time and I actually get more done with her along than I do alone! I got gas, groceries, a cable I need for work and looked for shoes. Not bad for two hours. I am working on creating a list for when she gets home again.
Tonight was knit night at Brenda’s place. She has sent me home with a huge bag of yarn from her friend so I will have to have a look through that.
I have been working on a cowl and got lots done on it tonight- only one skein left to do.
I also got a small, super warm cowl done, which will go to the Christmas market. Not super gorgeous, but super warm!
Well, I’m off to bed! I’m trying to keep the routine that is giving me these good days!
