Why does this day keep showing up???!!!
I had the district in to do their new reading assessments which are exactly the same as the ones I was taught to do 18 years ago so I’m still trying to figure out what’s cutting edge about this?!?!
We got through math and my students seem to be doing well at counting by tens, but I’d better get to assessing them tomorrow before we move onto counting by 5s and they get confused.
We also started a class book about solving problems in peaceful ways. Let’s hope it helps!
We managed to add 6 hearts to our wall today and had no violent incidence. I call that a good day!
We had a meeting about report cards after school but then worked out after that. It seems as though my butt hurts as soon as I get into a lunge position. Maybe my body is protesting! We did:
Lunges with front raises
Lunges with lateral raises
Bird dog/ double crunch
Banded alternating leg raises/ banded squats
Slider froggers/ slider planks
Hamstring curls on the medicine ball/ mountain climbers
And between each of these we did a minute of cardio which was froggers, skaters, jogging, squat pulses, reverse mountain climbers, skipping, jacks, and burpees.
There was a little puddle of sweat around me by the end!
Yesterday I spent most of the day reading Melt For You by JR Geissinger. It was so good! It had lots of funny banter between the characters. The plot moved along at a good pace, the characters were interesting and grew a lot, and underlying it all was an important message that I think most women need to hear!
Tonight I started my next NetGalley book which is One Christmas Eve by Shannon Stacey. She is one of my favourite authors and I was laughing out loud by 5 pages in, so I think this one is going to be good too!
Well, I should be knitting, but I think I’m just going to read some more.
