Weekend Coffee Share: An Update

weekendcoffeeshareIf 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 withΒ 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?

  1. I would tell you that I’ve been proof reading report cards and reprinting them for teachers when mistakes have been corrected. I’ve been coaching boys’ basketball in the mornings and I went to a half day workshop to learn more about the new library circulating system. There was so much information that I was afraid I wouldn’t remember half of it. I was right. I no sooner got back and tried to use some of my new knowledge and I couldn’t access the page I needed. Time for a phone call to the help desk.

  2. I’ve enjoyed your coffee (it was a decaf so that I can sleep at night). I hope that last week will not repeat and that you will gather enough energy to bear the week to come. I’ll stop for coffee next weekend too, if you are around. Take good care, Colline πŸ™‚


  3. Yours is one of the first blogs I read in the morning so now I am going down to the kitchen to make coffee. I will lift my mug to you this morning, Colline.
    Cheers for a good week. I will tell you that I enjoyed sharing a cup with you today


  4. Good luck with the coming week—sounds like you have a lot going on! We’ll be Mardi Gras-ing at the beginning of the week, and by the end of the week we’ll want to cocoon in the house and relax, I’m sure!

  5. Despite your exhaustion, you were able to accomplish quite a lot. The day of rest must have been what you needed. Hope you have a wonderful week. Thanks for the coffee and the chat.


  6. We are just starting the new school year in Australia so I am still trying to get my head around the kids’ new schools. My son started high school and doesn’t have a locker so everyday there’s a big hunt to pack the bag and he forgets something every day but it’s only early days yet.
    My daughter and I saw Matilda the Musical in Sydney yesterday and stumbled across some of the Chinese New Year decorations in the city. Great day! xx Rowena


    1. They did go well Patti – and I am pleased about that. You always wonder whether the parents would question your comments and the grades given to their child. This time round, there were no disagreements on grades πŸ™‚
