It’s nice to think the work week is half over!

Teaching:

I am feeling very behind as I still need to have 9 kids read to the class and I need to assess a ton for reading individually. Ugh!

It was super hot again today so we spent as much time outside as possible. We did our goals for the report cards. Grade 1s setting their own goals- it really is a joke! I am becoming very good at just saying- nope go pick a different one.🤣

We did our chalkboard spelling, did gym outside. We then walked around the school on our way back to class finding objects outside that are the same size as our foot. We did our math drill and then went to lay on the gym floor to cool off.

This afternoon I assessed two kids, and we read a book about First Nations and started colouring a feather. 215 children’s bodies were found on the grounds of a residential school so it’s been a tough week acknowledging this event while being appropriate for six year olds.

We ended the day playing outside.

I left pretty quick after school and stopped by the grocery store to pick up some food.

Knitting:

I finished my test knit socks last night!

Tonight I was working on my test knit shawl, but really feel like I’ve made a mistake so I have emailed the designer to see if I am on the right track or not. In the meantime I am using my leftover skein of Fleece Handmaiden to make a The Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief. This yarn is a fingering where it calls for worsted, but I have double the amount of yarn, so will just keep knitting until I finish the skein. It has been really nice to be doing a straightforward knit!

Exercise:

I did three laps of the field with the kids today for National Running Day and then this evening I did a kickboxing video in FitOn. My high speed data ran out so my workout took forever as I knitted in between it buffering🤣

I managed to get a salad made and my dishwasher loaded so I am going to call today a success.

Have fun!

  1. sounds like a productive day. Could you have the children read outside right before or after recess? Sort of slow down that transition and get the reading in?

    I just went and read about the sad news you shared. It is so hard to think that anyone could be so cruel and yet we still this type of history being uncovered again and again. We can only hope that by not sheltering the next generation that history will not be doomed to repeat itself. I am sure you will find the right words to share with with your students and help them see that by accepting differences, we learn to love and care for everyone

  2. I would be lying on the gym floor too! We have put up our foam window covers today…it’s going to hit 95 😳, so I may be lying on the floor in the basement!

      1. I love having a cold head and a warm body when I sleep. I’m glad you were comfortable and got a good sleep!
