I was so excited today when my run was canceled and I realized I got to just go home and stay home!

Teaching:

It was a pretty good day. We did calendar and I was happy I could regularly get to my little guy with poor fine motor so I could help him with his printing. We then had music. I had to go back into my class to grab something and it was interesting to see my awesome class out of control. Guess that’s what you get when a teacher has only taught high school and the kids are bored by your lessons. Do five year olds care about beat, meter, rhythm, etc? No. There is actually a collective sight when I tell them they have music 😦

We played with numbers and the kids are so funny. The simplest games entertain them. Each child has a box with number cards and they got to take turns naming which number everybody had to find and show them. They loved it. Sometimes little kids still amaze me!

This afternoon we had silent reading and I tested two more kids on their alphabet knowledge. I am really missing having my volunteer who usually does this all for me! We also had some catch up time and read a book about having a positive attitude. We ended the day with outside play, though it started to rain again with three minutes left. It was funny to see all the kids huddle under the tree as though the rain was going to melt them.

I can’t say I’ve done a whole lot. I have stretched and rolled and played scrabble and read.

Reading:

Have finished the book That Summer by Lauren Willig. I love her Pink Carnation series so was happy to borrow another of her books. This one was interesting as it has some mystery to it, but I did find the ending sad.

I also finished You Had Me at Hola by Alexis Daria. This book took me forever to read and I have to admit I didn’t love it and I won’t recommend it.

I have now started reading Take a Hint Dani Brown by Thalia Hibbert. It was once again a weird start, but I’m willing to give her the benefit of the doubt as her other book turned out so well after a weird start too. She takes the idea of a quirky hook to the extreme.

Well I’m going to go crawl into bed.

Have fun!

  1. That’s so odd to me that the kids don’t like music. Even when we had a weird music teacher growing up, everyone liked it since it wasn’t “school” lol. You finished a bunch of books yesterday! Definitely inspiring me to work on mine since this week has been exhausting lol

      1. I don’t do music so it’s completely out of my hands. We dance to Roar, I’m still Standing, I’m a Believer and KidsBop every day and they seem to like that
