If we were having coffee, I would tell you that it definitely feels like Fall. The temperatures is consistently staying lower and I have had to wear coat and gloves when going outside. Inside our apartment it has also been cold. After complaining, however, the problem has been fixed and now we are warm and toasty in our home.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am enjoying the Fall colours. Even though I live in the city, there are places where I can see the beautiful colours in the trees. One of the spots is in our school yard. This week, I went outside with the children and they spent some time searching for leaves so that they could work on an in class project. They had such fun searching for a variety and, once the bin was filled, they had extra time to play outside in the crisp air.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that on Wednesday I took a break from the classroom and attended a teacher’s workshop on guided reading. Guided reading is an area I want to work on this year as it is so important to get he children reading. Our school board has a vision of getting all grade 1s reading by the end of the year – which is why the grade 1 teachers have been given guided reading tables and are being sent on workshops. The session on Wednesday was a little disappointing as they spoke on the Daily 5 – something which I am already implementing in my classroom. I have been promised that the second session will be more of what I want. I will attend it with my grade 1 teacher colleagues next month.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that last night I went to another author talk presented by the Toronto International Author Festival, and that I will attending another this evening. I am really enjoying these sessions and will definitely attend more next year.
If we were having coffee, I would be saying goodbye. It has just gone past 11am and I need to get ready for my exercise class. When I get back I will work a little on some book reviews before going to the author event. My read books have been piling up and I haven’t had a chance yet to sit at my computer and write down my thoughts on these book. Tomorrow it is my intention to complete my report cards as they are due on Tuesday.
If we were having coffee, I would wish you a wonderful weekend – and a Happy Halloween. 🎃👻😈
What would you tell me if we were having coffee?
