I headed out this morning for my run but at just under 1.5km my left hip had a pain that was not the ordinary. I thought for a moment of carrying on and then decided not to be stupid and turn around. I only got 2km in and hobbled around all day. I actually felt better when my colleague reminded me we had that tough workout after school yesterday. Hopefully that is the cause of the pain and it will go away quickly! I took a long Epsom salts bath after school (I figured out to read blog posts during it so I stayed in longer) and then foam rolled as well. I’m hoping a few days of this and I will be all better!
I might see progress! This morning we got calendar done which is truly painful right now but teaches so many concepts that it’s worth the pain. We also did our first journal entry and got our first poem/song. Not bad for just the morning! After quiet time we did our first math- counted to 100 and played mystery number which they loved. I don’t get what’s so exciting about guessing a number covered by a sticky note on the 100 chart, but year after year, it’s a hit!
We went to the gym and played turtle tag. I am so glad that so far our classes can handle gym together as that gives them gym every day. So necessary when we have rainy weather like we have now. It was also hilarious that my colleague usurped the talking role and made me the turtle in the demo and the kids said, I was a pretty fast turtle🤣
Before recess and lunch today I had my three boys decide who they would play with and where. I made sure it was a wise decision and that they were separated. It worked! No reported problems at recess and lunch🎉🎊.
Unfortunately another little guy hit a Kindergartener with his jacket🙄
I never thought I’d be this teacher, but I think we need some external incentive and we’ll start using bee tickets early this year.
This afternoon we managed planners, 5:47 of silent reading and some work on tattling versus reporting. Hopefully it sunk in!
I have been reading A Wedding in December by Sarah Morgan. While I was not invested for the first 20%, this book has turned out to be great:). I love how Sarah Morgan is writing longer women’s fiction now that allows her to explore more relationships in greater depth in her books. This is the story of the White family coming together for the youngest daughter’s wedding.
I loved how realistic the characters and relationships are. Every member has their secret to hide, their own agenda and their own journey. The characters are flawed and yet completely lovable and the series of events keep you going at a great pace. My favourite line of the book was, “try it and I’ll let you know”. This is definitely another winner from Sarah Morgan. Thank you to the author, publisher and NetGalley for the free copy in exchange for an honest opinion.

Well we didn’t win, but I think we made a pretty good showing for just two people.
Breakfast taco, granola bar, fruit yogurt cereal parfait, orange, plum, salmon with veggies, some fries.
Liane is obviously a bad influence on me as I was doing better today until we shared fries.
That’s it for me.
