Today wasn’t a great day as I was still upset about Christmas and my kids were wired!
My class has brought in 241 items for the food bank so that’s pretty amazing for twenty little kids.
We tackled the letter u and it’s short sound today. We managed to get through Around the World counting by 5s. The kids had music while I tried to get more editing of my report cards done.
This afternoon I got through a reading group and then we tackled reindeer. Reindeer is our theme this week. We learned reindeer facts.
Did you know:
Reindeer live for fifteen years in the wild and twenty in captivity.
Reindeer can swim.
Reindeer are called caribou in Canada.
Male and female reindeer grow horns. Male reindeer can be 1.4m wide!
We then pretended we had a pet reindeer. The ideas were great, but it was just too much writing for the little guys.
I got out for a run after school as I was hoping that would change my mood. I got 5.22km in the rain.
Thankfully my one social event of the week was still on which was great!
In the first round we knew:

The music round was tough! The categories were sun songs, rain songs, oh no you didn’t which was the techno version of songs, songs by Lil’, and 2013 songs.
Of course tonight was the night we were trying to stay ahead of another team🙄
