If we were having coffee, I would greet you with a sigh of relief. Yesterday afternoon I wrote the exam for the Canfitpro course that I did. I was nervous about writing it as there was a lot of material to memorise and understand. Reflecting on my answers afterwards, I know that I have made mistakes. Hopefully, tough, I have enough correct answers to to pass the exam (the pass mark is 80%). I will know my results during the upcoming week. My mind will not be settled until I know.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that even though my time was taken up with learning the material for the exam, I did read a little. I did not blog as much as I wanted to but I am hoping this week to write some more posts and to visit some blogs. I have a pile of books next to my bed waiting to be reviewed – and it just keeps getting higher. I do this every time but when I am in the mood for reading, I do not want to sit in front of the computer screen and type down my thoughts on what I have read.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that at the beginning of the week, I had a number of students who were still on vacation. By the end of the week, I had almost a full class and Monday will be back to normal. I have started the inquiry on structures and we are doing quite a bit of building. The children love this unit as it is a lot of fun. I enjoy seeing them design structures and build them.
This week I brought the iPads out again for my students to type their sentences. I took a picture of the structure they had built. Using the app Picolage, the children had to upload the photo and then type what they had built. I am currently still helping them use the iPad, as well as giving them the sentences to copy down. By May I hope to have them working independently.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that for a few days, it felt like winter again – we even had flurries! This morning, though, the weather was perfect when I went out. It is currently mild – and there is no wind blowing! I am hoping it stays like this for the rest of the week as I really want to put away jackets and boots. My body is tired of wearing all the warm clothing.
This afternoon I will spend time completing my weekend chores and will probably watch a film on Netflix. I have picked up my crochet hook again and am working on a project. Crochet and Netflix go well together 🙂
What would you tell me if we were having coffee?
