There is only supposed to be one first day of school each year, but this was my second try at it for this year.
I made myself get up and out for my usual run, even though I really wasn’t feeling it. I want to make it to South Dakota though, so I need to run. After 2km I felt fine and my splits actually improved with every kilometer. I got a nice 5.55km in before I started work.
I spent some time this morning answering kids in FreshGrade and commenting on their rocks. We wrote a parent email to explain how this all was going to work and then posted our first assignments. They had daily oral language, a journal, a subtraction still pre test and an introduction to measurement. You would not believe how many emails I answered about these things and only one child got them all done!🤣Which really doesn’t surprise me as I’m sure there’s lots of arguing accompanying these activities. I am just doing my job and allowing parents to do what works for them. The email specifically said that they could do the activities whenever it worked for them. I am not going to be the online school police!
I sent login info to parents for RAZ Kids (I am going to plead ignorance if I get into trouble), watched a webinar on Microsoft Teams and planned next week with my co teacher. We then went back to FreshGrade to comment on the work the students had done.
I can’t believe how quickly my days go and how exhausted I am at the end of them!
I finished my copilot cowl. It is a free pattern on Ravelry and it’s okay, but definitely not my favourite. I think it’s too long and narrow, but we shall see if I wear this one more than the last one.
I have just started listening to the Semi Attached Couple on LibriVox. I picked it solely because Elizabeth Klett narrates it and she’s great! So far it has made me smile a few times so I will keep going.
I am just starting to gauge swatch for my next sweater. We shall see how it goes.
The best part of my day was FaceTiming with my brother, sister in law and my nephew. It was so great to see them!!!!
Well I’m going back to swatching.
