Well not a bad day, except my feet hurt all day!

Teaching:

We did some work on the class rules. I decided this year just to write out my rules and have a discussion around them. Normally I brainstorm, but because I have in mind what I want, it never feels authentic. This process seemed to work well.

We also did our first piece of hallway writing. The students write about all major events and I display it in the hallway and at the end of the year, I make a book out of it. The coolest thing is seeing how far they have come! Today we wrote about what we think grade one will be and what we want to learn about.

This afternoon we read Officer Buckle and Gloria and we drew pictures of safety rules. These guys weren’t as creative, but that’s okay.

House:

After school I walked home in actual sunshine, though we had another inside day due to air quality again. I got my dusting done and all of my plants watered. I also got the sewing machine oil cleaned up. It’s a good thing my brother called me this morning g looking for elastic!

      1. Desks are separated, no sharing of anything and do my best to remind them to stay apart. They’re only allowed to be with their class.

  1. I missed the post where you found out what grade you’re teaching! Writing the rules and having a discussion about them is a good idea, less room for silly rules that kids think of.

    Trivia seemed hard this week! I knew some of them but definitely had to look up with a bigram was haha

    1. Yes I finally found out late last Friday. It’s been a very tiring week and we’re only halfway.
      We were truly horrible at trivia and mostly just guessed. Thankfully he explained a bigram as I had never heard of it either!

      1. Oh gosh, I’m sorry you heard so late. Just think that now you have less work days to the weekend than you did yesterday since we’re halfway through the week.
        It’s good he explained a bigram! I would have completely guessed, I mean I probably still would just have to guess but at least I could think a bit better with an explanation.
