Weekend Coffee Share: First Week Back At School

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that last week was my first week back at school. On Tuesday, after the Labour Day weekend, I had met all of my students by 9am. Thankfully there were only a few tears as most of the children knew me by sight even though had had not already been in my classroom. Most of my class this year are grade 2s (16 students of the 20) and I had interacted with some of them last year in the hallways.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that the week flew by quickly. I had a lot to do – and the upcoming week will be no different. September is filled with deadlines and I like to get it all done as quickly as possible – before I know it, the time to work on the progress reports will arrive.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that my class is settling in nicely. I am slowly getting to know them; and they are slowly getting to know the routines of the class. Time will tell what I need to focus on this year as I get to know their needs and what it is that they enjoy.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that this weekend I have the sniffles. I was not completely over my summer cold when work started up again and my body is reminding me of this. I have spent the weekend resting a bit in between my chores and I am hoping that I will feel in top form tomorrow.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that yesterday afternoon I spent some time with my weekend read: A Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson. This is a fantasy novel that is all over Instagram at the moment as readers are posting extremely positive views of it. I decided to read it as fantasy fiction is my favourite. And I can say that so far the writing is excellent!

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that supper is ready to be served. My husband knows the way to my heart (read yesterday’s SoCS post to understand this comment more). 🙂

What would you tell me if we were having coffee?

  1. Well, if you saw my “Linky Link” share, you know that my wife’s new TV show, Kelly Clarkson’s Talk Show, premieres tomorrow across the country on Monday…it’s a fantastic show for a lot of reasons: Kelly is a real, compassionate and inspirational person, the show has humor AND heart, and Kelly opens every show with a great song while walking through the audience.

    Also, on Tuesday’s episode with Ellen Degeneres and John Legend, Kelly has a huge surprise for a group of Music Teachers….Kelly’s Mom was a teacher and Kelly wants to continue the push to give all teachers more respect and resources to do their job!

    1. I saw that John. So exciting! I will unfortunately not be watching as we do not subscribe to cable. As for Ellen’s show, I will see if she shares the snippet on her Facebook page.


  2. I hope your sniffles are gone by now. How exciting to meet new students 🙂 I am looking forward to read your review of your latest read. I’ve also seen friends on Instagram LOVING that book. Thank you for the coffee. Have a great new week!
