Sorry I’ve been MIA. I’ve just been sitting quietly on my couch trying to recuperate as best I can. My stomach and arms are still quite unhappy, but I at least managed to get back to work today.
My students were quite good today for the most part, though some things never change. The same boys took forever in the coat room and there were the usual shenanigans, though I saw hope in the fact that they managed to walk to the gym silently. Maybe there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
We spent the day working on our New Years Resolutions. We first watched Squirrel’s New Year’s Resolution. There is a version that is read online and it’s great at explaining what a resolution is and gives some simple examples. The kids came up with a lot of soccer examples, but there were a couple of good ones about learning to read and reading every day.
We spent some time in the gym doing relays to get rid of energy and then this afternoon we started talking about winter and Drew our tree in winter. Thankfully we can do so through the window as it has been raining continuously for days.
My stomach and arms are still bothering me, but I was hoping some gentle exercise would help with the stomach at least. I did a VERY slow 2.78km run to the park and back. I hope it helps!
I watched Two Turtle Doves and loved how Christmassy it was. I will have to watch it again as I didn’t do a workout to it.
I am still working on my baby snowflake blanket and am quite loving it, even though I wasn’t planning on it:)
I decided that I might as well go to trivia as I could sit there as easily as I could sit on my couch and maybe it would take my mind off of the pain.
