Well today I returned to work…
The day didn’t go too badly. We managed to write about three events from our holidays, two special gifts and one person we spent time with. We also changed our desks around, started place value and we started a unit on penguins by listing our wonders. The students had better wonders this time than they did the first two times we did this activity this year. They want to know if babies are born knowing how to swim, if the eggs are different sizes, and how do penguins dry off. These are actually only three of three pages of wonders they came up with!!! It was neat to hear some really good questions from students who struggle otherwise. Inquiry teaching is a big thing right now in our district, but when I questioned how that was done with grade ones, I got told that if they left grade one being able to ask a great question, I would have put them on the right path. So that’s what I’m working towards!
After surviving staff meeting, I headed out to get my 8km run done. Unfortunately, I was at 6.68km when my massage therapist called and my phone turned off:( I was not going back out to finish that off, so I guess I just won’t be getting that mission☹️
I did manage to do 200 squats, walk to and from work and do a 1:15 plank.
I couldn’t get warm and so decided to do some baking. I made apple cinnamon bran muffins from the cookbook, Gluten Free Baking. They were easy to make, but they look very dry to me, they taste dry and they don’t have a ton of flavour.
Well I’m now back to being curled up in bed with my knitting and a Hallmark movie.
