This week, I start back up – having just had a great four day weekend, it will be tough to get into the swing of things again (especially working all day :o) But I love seeing the kids and beginning our new unit on vehicles will be exciting!
Moving day is done! It wasn’t too bad – took a few hours to fill up the truck and got help on the other end with speedy mover men 🙂 the place looks very nice and I look forward to unpacking and setting up some more. Bringing over Patches tomorrow as well so hope he likes his new home!
Tomorrow is the day! I am officially moving into my own place and taking many of the things from my parents house – it’ll be a long day since I have more furniture than I used to, but we’ll do it and watch Hunger Games afterwards ha! I’ll be ready in the morning 🙂
This year I didn’t have Thanksgiving with my own family, and I was very delighted by the open arms of my boyfriends families for dinner and dessert. I loved that I didn’t feel out of place, and joined right in with games and conversations!
This comic is quite cute and relates to the lunch that was at work – many children don’t enjoy the look of food but the taste turns out be unbelievable.
Wow, I cannot believe it is already the day before Thanksgiving! I wrote my very first post around this time about the true meaning of the holiday and how to teach it in schools – I only have 45 more days until January 8 when I started the #blogaday 😮 This year is going by so fast and I am thrilled that I got to annotate it through my blog. The holidays will feel a bit different this year though because I don’t really get a break due to my job (just the actual holidays and sometimes, a few days after). I’ll have to get in the spirit through the children at work and on the weekends with family and friends when the festivities get going 🙂
Today the children made handprint turkeys! I remember when I used to come home with all those types of holiday crafts 🙂 it is so much fun for the children to pick out the colors of feathers and discover how tracing their hand works. It is also great for families to have as a long-lasting ornament!
This is a very calming post – I love that children can find the happiness in their every day lives! (even if their circumstances are pretty rough)
You know the kid.
The one who greats you every day with a big smile.
The one who never complains.
The one who looks for good in every situation.
Yet you know the child’s background, you watch and listen, not knowing what tomorrow may bring.
You might not have the solutions, but a an ear for those in need.
This week, our unit is “things that go” – we decided to change our sensory table into sand and vehicles so the children can practice driving and notice the patterns in the tracks. They were loving it when we set it up on Friday. I am excited to see their interactions and discoveries as the unit goes on! I posted two today because I ran out of time yesterday 😮
This weekend, my roommate and bestie from college came up to hang out and relax 🙂 It is really nice having her here to laugh and bond about all the silly things we did when we lived together. I am very glad that she ended up being able to make it! I love that I am not too far away for a visit and it’s a great break right before the holidays.
