The day went pretty well. I am attributing it to everyone feeling more at ease because our principal was away for the day.
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🙄😖
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!
As I write this, I realize I forgot to do my floors today:(
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
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.
