It’s been a busy day!
Just before I forget.. I finished a good book last night and started the second in the series this morning. The first was called The Chocolate Duchess by Sidney Jane Bailey. This is complete fluff, but it was fun.
The kids were fine. We got through long I in phonics, a little bit of place value practice, library and a science experiment on why birds fly in a v when migrating.
I really noticed today that some of the kids are noticeably better at things now than they were before Christmas break. It’s great to see.
I was also super happy to see that four children have already moved onto the next level in home reading. Yay! I had a feeling this group would move fast if I could just get the program for them.
I spent my prep and some time after school making an inventory list of our guided reading books. I’m going to use mine to keep track of what books I use with what groups.
I drove over to a nearby River and ran there with Dennis and Sarah. This got my car moving (I had to jumpstart it again yesterday) and got my run in:). It was actually quite a quick run as we were racing the daylight.
My gas fireplace turned itself off again yesterday and wouldn’t come back on so my cousin came again tonight to fix it. I wish I had been more organized and had something on hand to clean the glass. I tried vinegar, but I don’t feel like it did anything:(
There were just four of us for the first round.
What we knew in the first round:
Who are the goalies for the Canucks this year?
Dipieteo, Holtby, Demko
Which province produces the most milk in Canada?
Where was the Dodo bird from?
When was the penny discontinued in canada?
The second round was all music. It went from the 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s, 2010s.
The Kahoot round was tough!
In the final round we knew:
What movie won best picture in 2020 Oscars?
Who played the son on Happy Days?
What is the official language of Egypt?
What is the previous name of Mumbai?
What element used to be called quicksilver?
In the song Beer for my horses, what do the men drink?
What are the first six words of Dancing Queen by Abba?
You can dance, you can jive
We are sitting in third place overall right now. It’s really bugging me that one of the guys on the team in first always has his phone out though. I want to give him the benefit of the doubt, but it’s bugging me!!
