Each day I’m just trying to get a little further ahead in my preparations for the year.
A 3.14km run the opposite way this morning. Have to remember that when I go this way I have to go to the bridge either coming or going to make up the distance.
The best part of the run was when the golden retriever cane running at me and then proceeded to lean against me🤣
This evening I got a weights workout done. It included three sets of 12 of the following:
Bicep curls, shoulder press, tricep kickbacks, upright rows, squats, plie squats, calf raises, deadlifts, crunches, and reverse crunches.
Another very long day, but hopefully I’m making progress. I had forgotten that I had a prep today so my morning consisted only of calendar and then getting as much done as possible .
After recess we had quiet time, and then tackled our safety tips. I love reading the book Officer Buckle and Gloria by Peggy Rathman because the pictures tell a whole different story so not only do I cover school safety, but I also start on the reading idea of looking at the picture as a reading strategy. We had a great giggle and then wrote our own safety tips on paper stars. Tomorrow we will have a lesson on cutting and the children will cut them out.
Finally this afternoon we got our planners and wrote a message in them ( it took forever!), we also tried out silent reading for the first time and managed five minutes. Finally we read the book The Best Part of Me and wrote a class book having each student name the best part of themselves. It was a lesson to me to put better pictures on the board. I had drawn a quick sketch beside each body part they named so they could find the word again, but I found they just copied my pictures on their page. It makes for a very interesting book🤣
Finally we cleaned up and went outside.
After school I got the journal books labeled, the hands and background cut out for art tomorrow afternoon, he job chart names made and I started on my timetable. My list never seems to go down.
I made a quick run to Michael’s to grab a gift card for my volunteer and am now going to sit down for twenty minutes and knit a few rows.
