If we were having coffee, I would tell you that today I am not feeling well. On Thursday, I woke up feeling exhausted. Luckily it was an easy day as my class participated in a art activity – which meant that for 2 periods at a time, I had only half of my students. Friday I felt okay but, as the day progressed, so did my sense of well-being. The day ended with me experiencing terrible cramps in the mid-section of my body and hanging over the edge of the toilet bowl. I had finally caught the stomach bug that has been doing the rounds at my school. Last night I could not face food. This morning I feel a little hungry but I am going to ‘go plain’ today – no fancy or rich food. And instead of coffee and cream, I will drink a light milk-free rooibos tea with you.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I have been seeing the parents of the children in my class to update them on their child’s progress. Yes, the report cards are going home on Tuesday and it is time to check in with families. This time round I am trying to spread the interviews out so that I do not exhaust myself as I did during the last round of interviews.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that all the grade 1s , and my grade 1 and 2 combined class, went on a field trip this week to go see a concert by Gregg Le Rock,
Gregg Le Rock is a Canadian musician who writes and sings French songs for children and this year is the second time I have taken my class. I prepare my students by teaching them the words to the songs and singing with them every morning. The children love the concert and it is always a pleasure to see them ‘rocking to the music’.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that last weekend I pre-wrote many of my blog posts for the last week. As a result, I was able to post more often. Hopefully I will be able to keep up this habit so that my blog posts are less erratic.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that the rest of the weekend I will be resting. I am giving Zumba a skip as I want my body to recover quickly from the bout of stomach flu. I will miss dancing to the Latin beats, but there are times when a person has to rest.
Enjoy your weekend and have a wonderful week.
What would you tell me if we were having coffee?
