It sure is tough to get back into routine after an extra day off!
We got through a sheet about what students did on Thanksgiving, as well as gym and a collage about needs versus wants.
My students weren’t horrible but I definitely did a lot of explicit teaching around behavior today. We covered how to get space for yourself in a lineup or on the carpet and how to play on the playground. I’m hoping this helps with certain students, but I guess we shall see.
I stopped in to get my eyelashes and eyebrows died today and then forced myself out the door for a run. I only went to the park and back, so not even 3km, but it was at least something. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better running day.
I’ve been listening to a podcast called Not Your Mom’s Romance Bookclub and they had talked about a book series that included knitting by Penny Reid. I’ve never been a huge Penny Reid fan, but decided to try the first book, Neanderthal Seeks Human. It ended up being a cute read. I liked how the main female character starts spouting random thoughts when she’s nervous. It was also great when knitting needles were used in a fight and characters argued over the loss of a skein of MadTosh merino🤣. I will definitely move onto the next book in the series.
Thankfully I’ve had a better day than yesterday. I’m wondering if my being out of sorts is caused by a lack of sweets? Hmmm🤔
Today I’ve had:
Oatmeal with peanut butter
Turkey, dressing, veggies
Fish and chips (I gave up my after school snack and went for a run so I could have this).
I finally got myself a treat for being at day five yesterday and bought my first knitting magazine. Actually I bought two! Knit scene and Knit Simple.
There were four of us for trivia tonight. I knew:
Who wrote The Handmaid’s Tale?
Who did Einstein marry?
Who was Ariel’s dad?
Finish the Eminem lyrics
There’s vomit on his sweater already, mom’s spaghetti
What does a lapidary do?
I just didn’t feel like we knew anything tonight. Oh well, it was still fun:)
