The day went pretty well. I am attributing it to everyone feeling more at ease because our principal was away for the day.

Teaching:

We got through a journal entry about peace and I was super happy that so many children volunteered to read what they had written- even the little guy who cried the first time!

We had gym and did the stations approach again- hoop jumps, plank, jumping jacks and squat jumps. I did them with the kids and got quite the workout!

This afternoon we had silent reading. I always do guided reading during this time and today a little girl came up and asked when she got to come. I couldn’t believe I missed her on my plan!! I really praised her for coming and asking though.

We also did a cut and paste about peaceful versus not peaceful actions. We did it as a class and it went super smoothly.

We ended the day with outside playtime. I really wish I had worn about five more layers! It was so cold today and the kids were super excited because the forecast called for snow. None showed up though.

I spent some time after school working with my teaching buddy on the report card templates. They have changed it again on us. This is the fourth time in four years🙄😖

Shopping:

I did some more online shopping today as I work to use up gift cards. I have purchased an electric blanket from Walmart which should be here by the 20th and I spent an hour picking two books from Chapters to use up my store credit as I didn’t want to forget about it. I have the new Oh She Glows cookbook and a modern top down knitting book coming, hopefully!

House:

As I write this, I realize I forgot to do my floors today:(

Knitting:

I have made a list of projects I have upcoming and now I just feel overwhelmed:(

I was working on the October Hat, but screwed up and had to rip out again. Maybe I had better put this to the side for a bit.

On the list:

Sweater test knit

Fix my coral sweater- wore it today and I want the sleeves longer

Socks for Jacqueline

Toque for Lyndsay

Toque for secretary’s daughter

Fix purple sweater – I want it skinnier and longer

October hat

Mitts out of Weekender leftovers

I know it’s all fun, but the length of the list makes me nervous. Now I just want to get them done and off the list!

Well that’s it for me today.

Have fun!

  1. It is always good to see the kiddos step up for him/herself. Granted then teacher guilt kicks in like… ummm how did I forget her? Looks like you have a lot on your knitting plate, but I know you will find the order that works best and click things off the list quickly.

    isn’t it crazy how one person can change the whole mood of the work environment? And enough that when they aren’t there there is a whole different feel to life! I still can’t believe you are doing the report cards over AGAIN. This is silly

    1. Yup I was proud of her, but felt horrible for missing her on my list!
      Ugh if I could just figure out the best order, I’d be a lot calmer about all of my projects.
      I know and we weren’t even told that they had changed!!!

    1. Good plan! I actually went and bought the yarn for the three projects I owe to other people and have started on the one I have to have finished first
