My co teacher is back after having been off sick for two weeks and boy was it ever nice!!!
I started the day getting three rows done on the afghan pattern and managed to finish that one up later this evening. I am on my second to last call of yarn, so we’ll see if I’m going to have enough or have to go buy more. It seems unbelievable that I am so close to being done this big project too:)
I’m starting to daydream about what I will make next.
The day went pretty well! We finished our seasons mini book and the children all practiced reading it. I changed math to a 100 chart picture of a turkey. It was very interesting to see who knew the numbers well and who didn’t and got frustrated.
This afternoon I was the one frustrated as we tried to cram too large a project in the afternoon space. It got done and turned out well, but I just felt that I was always after the children to hurry and worried about running out of time. That’s what I’m trying to avoid this year!
The directed drawing turkeys did turn out super cute, even though I did the steps in the wrong order. And yes I did say this was one time they didn’t have to colour realistically:)
I got home to beautiful sunshine and just felt like baking. I have a super easy granola bar recipe that turns out great no matter what you put in it, so I whipped up some of those:)
The recipe comes from Lunch Box: Creative Recipes for Everyday Lunches which I have had forever.
1 cup brown sugar ( I use less)
1 tbsp canola oil
1 tbsp flour ( I used millet)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1.5 cups oats
1/3 cup raisins
1/3 cup dried fruit
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup chopped nuts or seeds
This time I used oats, raisins, craisins, dried blueberries and chopped pecans. I have done all different mix-ins though and it’s always turned out great!
This evening I went back to athletic yoga with my friend Corianne. It was still a great workout, but I did like that there seemed to be a bit more stretching in it this time:)
Well I’m off to sleep so I can survive Friday tomorrow:)
