The kids were interesting. One of the more challenging grades in the school apparently. With my motherly opinion and novice training - I am estimating at least two kids on the autism spectrum. There is a diagnosed sensory defensive with ADHD student, and numerous children in dysfunctional homes. All in all, they are a bunch of cuties - but some in need of lots of love. It is pretty sad really. I am so thankful to be blessed with a great husband and our children's lives are blessed.
Only three kidlets were absent after their return from school camp, the other's had to suck it up I guess. I think about my Master J who is the same age - and I cannot fathom sending him to school the day after returning home from Grade 1 camp!
On a positive note, the children in the class could focus their activeness with some maths activities. They were great - some activities that I had never seen before. I took some pics so you could see!
A little engineer built this great pirate ship. Chickpeas that have been soaked overnight and toothpicks! I know what my Master S will be doing this weekend. The kids also built towers with newspaper and masking tape.
Here is a picture of the teacher dress (as I call it) - I bought from Esprit. These pictures are especially for TK at Tiffany's Writing Compendium.
Okay, this is obviously not me, this in the online version, my dress has long sleeves and I have teamed with with a cotton jumper and scarf, leggings and my tan boots. Here I am.... Me after a long day with my slippers and a throbbing head! Very glam! And Milly is watching out of her new cat bed - isn't it cute?
I am feeling far from a model and hoping I feel better tomorrow - or I might have to call in sick. Can you do that on teaching rounds? Will figure it out in the morning and see how I am fairing!
Much love to you - Rach xo
