It was an interesting day to say the least! Thankfully I was just the audience for most of it!
We had a fire drill first thing this morning, but after that I had arranged for the students to use a giant marshmallow and 6 pretzel sticks to create a character that they then wrote about in their journal. The students were super engaged and were surprisingly good about getting down to the writing portion. Getting to eat their creation for recess may have helped:)
After recess we wrote about Sports Day and boy did they have a lot to say. I wish I had had more time to give them!
This afternoon we moved across Canada to Quebec. The students are getting really good at using their planner information pages to find out facts:)
At the end of the day we had our usual half hour of outside playtime:)
The drama came at lunch. We had arranged a breakfast for the last day of school, but we have to be there on time so the breakfast is at 7:45 for anyone who is interested. Teacher A was complaining about how early it was and Teacher B (who was in on the planning) said that it wasn’t mandatory so people didn’t have to come who didn’t want to. Well ten minutes later Teacher A is going on about how hurt she was. I thought at first she was joking around, but I guess not!
Then Teacher C asked what we did last year so Teacher B explained it to her. She didn’t bother to listen and asked again. Well Teacher B said I just answered your question and you didn’t bother to listen. Teacher C got up and stormed out. Teacher C then pouted and glared and my co-teacher and I on the playground later (neither of us were involved in any way!). I think we all need a break from each other!!!!
After a few classroom chores I got home in time for a run. I had a really good run and once again felt really strong. It’s a nice change for me! I still went out the shorter side of the trail as it’s shadier and it was really hot at 4:30 this afternoon!
It was weird though because my shoes felt big today! It’s strange as it’s been at least a month of my feet feeling way too big in my shoes and now they felt so big. I wonder what’s up?
I also did a workout I saw on Facebook this evening. It was:
30 sumo squats
30 walking lunges
80 high knees
40 glute kickbacks
40 side jacks
40 curtsy lunges
It was quick but I only did one round as I wanted to take it easy on myself tonight.
We have a baby shower for one of the teachers at work tomorrow so I made Rhubarb Dream Bars. They were super easy to make as they are just a shortbread crust and then a vanilla custard with rhubarb added topping. They looked good when they came out of the oven.
I just hope they taste good! The teacher has a peanut allergy so I was examining my ingredients when I realized the flour blend I currently have has milk in it. I guess I now know why I’ve had so many instances lately of being sick.
I finally sat down and worked on my cardigan today. I am a little worried that I’ve made it too long, but thinking I’ll just keep going- better too long than too short!
Once again I’ve been enjoying a Hallmark movie as I knit boring stockinette. Tonight it is The Sweetest Heart. Once again there are three very handsome gentlemen in this movie and it’s about a baker so I of course love all the cupcakes and baking scenes. I have to admit I find myself slightly distracted by the mark Julie Gonzalo (lead lady) has between her eyes. Oh well, it’s still cute!
Well that’s it for me!
