If we were having coffee, I would tell you that it feels a little chilly this morning. Yes, the temperatures have dropped this week. Tuesday it was very cold in my classroom – so cold I was wearing my coat inside! To feel a little warmer, we had to go and spend some time outside. I am happy to say that the furnace at the school has been fixed and now it is a little warmer inside!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that this week has flown by. Because it was Thanksgiving on Monday, we had only 4 working days. As the week ended, I could not help wishing that we had more four-day weeks during the year. I believe that we work too much and do not spend enough time enjoying our lives. I know that I spend a lot of the weekend recovering from the work-day week and often wish for the extra day so that I can spend time doing more than just resting and doing household chores..
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am starting to get to know the quirks and personalities of the children in my class. We have shared a few laughs, and sometimes I can’t help but smiling at things my students say and do (which seems to be the mission of this year’s class clown 🙂 ). We are still working on improving their stamina for focusing on their work but, little by little, we are getting there.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I have had a good week but that I am feeling a little tired today. I think I will be taking a nap this afternoon!
What would you tell me if we were having coffee?
