If we were having coffee, I would welcome you into my home. We would sit comfortably on the sofa and settle in for a chat. You may ask me how I am doing as last week I spoke of my exhaustion. I would tell you I feel much better, especially as I stayed home on Wednesday and slept in the afternoon.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I have begun a new inquiry with my class on structures. Do you remember that I created this inquiry last year when I did the course: French as a Second Language part2? The inquiry worked really well in kindergarten and this year I am adding other activities to suit the grade 1 & 2 curriculum. The children are enjoying the experience so far and keep asking me what they are going to build next. In this inquiry, the children get to build and draw structures – and later on design and create something. The classroom is abuzz with activity. I love to see the children enjoying themselves this way.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that it snowed yesterday. For a moment we all thought we would have snow on the ground again. But alas, the snow did not stick. During the week we had a day that felt like Spring – and even today the temperature does not have the feel of long winter days. Our Winter this year has been mild and it looks like it will be short as well.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that next week is going to be busy with parent interviews. My schedule is full and I know that it is going to be a busy week. I hope your week is not too crammed. If it is, look after yourself – and I will try to do the same.
What would you tell me if we were having coffee?
