The day actually went better than I was expecting:). It started with seeing these signs on my way to work which was super lovely!

Teaching:

It was an early dismissal day so there wasn’t a lot of time. We finally finished off our big problem versus small problem work by completing a worksheet. I also talked to the boys who were involved in hitting, actually there was a lot of hitting today. However, the one boy hit the other because he was breaking branches off trees. Thankfully we have that cleared up!

We also finally got to math this week. We are working on a booklet about numbers 11-20. I am aiming for these kids having a solid number sense in this first term. I’m sure not getting through as much as I usually do!

Finally this afternoon we only had time to read a story after our lunch.

After the children went home, I spent three hours calling and talking to parents. I feel like most of the calls were really positive and went well. I had one parent who had the child with her. I always hate when parents do this as you then can’t have an honest discussion about the child. 🙄. There is a time and a place people!

Baking:

I quickly got my condo tidied as there is a fire alarm inspection tomorrow- don’t want anyone looking at my laundry drying🤣.

I then got a pumpkin goat chocolate loaf made for my friend Cori and her family as she had surgery on Monday. I stopped and bought normal chocolate chips as they are much cheaper and thankfully I managed not to have to touch them, it unfortunately, now I can’t try it. I sure hope it tastes good!

Well that’s it for me. I think I’ll go curl up in bed as I’ve been super tired lately.

Have fun!

  1. ok first… did it bug you that the ck was backwards on back? it was the first thing I noticed.

    I’m glad things are going well in school. building a strong number sense foundation is so key in these grades and worth the time!

    I hope your friend enjoys the bread and her surgery goes smoothly

  2. I am loving my pre-K’s and 1st graders this year! They are either very short or very tall, no inbetween, but they have all gotten comfortable and are now telling me all sorts of things they shouldn’t 😂! They are also flying through their Twinkles, so I’m either getting better at teaching or I have an incredible groups of little ones this year. 🙂

    1. Oh that’s great! Maybe it’s just the kids born that year as mine are awesome too. I sometimes have trouble meeting the eyes of parents or not laughing when I hear more than I should
