Happy Friday Eve

Well it’s amazingly almost Friday again. I swear these weeks are going faster than ever before!

Teaching:

We tackled the letter e printing today and I made the children changed five e’s before they even came to see me.

They had music and I had a pretty useless prep:(

We finally got math and did a math assessment. I haven’t had a chance to look and see how it went with having all the children do it at once. Normally all assessment is done individually at this age, but we asked the kids to roll a die, and then print the number, day whether it was even or odd, put it into a ten frame, tally it and tell whether it was greater than or less than three. I guess we’ll see how much math they took in this term.

This afternoon we did art, but I’m not telling you about it until I take a picture of it tomorrow.

I was puttering around prepping for next week with my teaching buddy when my phone rang. It was another courier with my new phone, so once again I found myself sprinting down the hall so that my phone wouldn’t be left outside my door for too long. Of course, I haven’t done anything with the new phone yet.🤣

Exercise:

I was supposed to run today, but didn’t end up getting home quite early enough so I did a MetPro workout instead. I did bicep curls, squats, plié squats, wall sit, tricep kickbacks, crunches, and bird dogs. I then followed this up with fifteen minutes of yoga stretching for the hips and low back.

Knitting:

I have spent way too much time tonight playing scrabble on my phone, but I did finally pick up my knitting and got one row done. This knitting five stitches together definitely makes this my least favourite pattern!

Well, I’m already tired so I’m going off to bed.

Have fun!

Friday Eve

This thought got me through today!

Teaching:

I actually had to get my big mean voice out today as my kids were noisy and not listening. I felt really bad, but I guess it’s pretty good to get to November before having to do that.

This morning we did a pre reading strategy of making predictions with the book, Dear Mrs. LaRue by Mark Teague. I love this book, but it definitely made me realize that some kids books are written for the parent reading them. It was probably too hard for them to understand but they did a great job of making predictions based on the front and back cover.

We finally got to some math! We did greater than and less than. We watched an introductory video and then did some practice on the smartboard. We didn’t get to the worksheet, but everyone seems to be understanding the concept. I thought it would be more difficult than even/odd, but I guess not.

This afternoon we made our poppies for the Remembrance Day wreath. Our assembly will be virtual but the wreaths will be displayed in the front hall. All but one student finished and that was because of talking!

We unfortunately didn’t make it outside to play today which was a shame because it was beautiful, but the poppies had to be done!

Exercise:

I didn’t feel like running, but had made a commitment to meet Melanie and so off I went. We got 5.59km done so pretty good for a Thursday night!

Eating:

I haven’t been super impressed with the MetPro app yet, but I see they’ve finally put me down a level. I am wondering if they’ve taken into account my size at all??? I will give it a few more days, but so far, the only plus has been that it is getting me off sugar!

Knitting:

I ripped out my toque so far and am looking for one I can do with two strands of fingering held together. I hope I find one soon as I don’t like being without a knitting project. As I write this, I’m realizing that I think I have three blue toques and here I am making another one?!?!

House:

I am very happy that I got my sheets changed and I got my dishes loaded and the dishwasher turned on today:)

Ok I’m off to read in bed.

Have fun!
