If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am loving the warmer weather. Yes, it has finally arrived and we can step outside in our short sleeves and sandals. The temperatures have risen – but not too much – and the rain has stopped. It is perfect for the last days of school.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that things are definitely wrapping up at school. During the past week, I started sending home the children’s work and the room is already looking emptier. This week I aim to spend my time tidying my classroom and putting things away for the summer. The children are enjoying the small amount of time they spend working and I am taking them outside for more play, as well as giving them the opportunity to play with the blocks that I have in the classroom.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that on Friday we released the butterflies to go forth and pollinate. I allowed the children to take the butterflies out of the terrarium – they were thrilled to hold them in their hands. It takes a while for the insects to realise that they can fly free so they stay for quite a while on the children’s hands.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that we had a school-wide assembly on Wednesday to say goodbye to our office administrators – both of them are leaving at the end of this school year to retire. We will miss them dearly as they have been an integral part of the school for more than 20 years.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I had an unexpected treat on Tuesday – I got to have coffee with a dear friend of mine whom I don’t see too often. We intended to chat about a book we read together, but got side-tracked with catching up! 😀
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am feeling exhausted – so much so that I fell asleep on Saturday and missed my Zumba class! 😦 It is near my summer break though and I am sure that this week will go by quickly. It will be sad to say goodbye to the students I have had for this past year but that is a part of teaching.
If we were having coffee, I would wish you a wonderful week. I know mine is going to be filled with endings and good-byes.
What would you tell me if we were having coffee?
