If we were having coffee, I would tell you that the weather for the last week has been perfect – not too hot and not too cold. This morning the air outside is refreshingly cool and has the potential to be hot and muggy. By then all my chores will be done and I will be able to do a little bit of relaxing and reading.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am taking things slowly in class. I have finished the curriculum and all the planned activities that will be reported on in the report cards. Now what I will do with my class are fun learning activities. During this upcoming week three of my students are leaving before the end of the school year to go on vacation and I am therefore getting all their work together so that it can go home before they leave for their planned trips. We will also have the class party a week before I normally would hold it as I want to wish them all well for the upcoming year – as well as give them their gift.
In addition to gathering all of my students’ work, I have started taking down things from my walls and putting items away in the cupboards. I was told on Thursday that my classroom will be used during the Summer for a Summer camp so it is important that the room be tidied and ready for another person to use by the 29 June. The downside to this is that my task needs to be done in 2 weeks; the upside is that I will be forced to finish on time and not linger over the tidying in the first week of our break.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that my family is missing the father of our tribe. We managed to speak to my husband last night and it was nice to see his face and hear him laugh. Sigh … another 2 weeks and then we will all be back together again. At least for a while.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am going to have a busy week. My report cards will be returned and I will make the corrections; the school concert is happening; and I will be tidying my room. The children are excited that the Summer vacation is almost here – and the teachers are looking forward to the break and the chance to rest and connect with their families. There is quite a buzz in the school at the moment.
I wish you a wonderful week ahead. May it be filled with sunshine and smiles.
What would you tell me if we were having coffee?
