Well I made it through the week! This was a tough week guys.....I was sick, not just I have a sniffle kind of sick but an I can't get off the couch or out of bed kind of sick. I do not do sick well, I moan and whinge and make sure everybody feels sorry for me....except they don't and now they mostly ignore me, so I have to give myself sympathy.
So I was sick. I am still sick, please feel sorry for me.
But! On Tuesday night I got a call from my Principal asking if I would be at school the next day....ummm yes is what you say when your Principal calls and because I think I am Superwoman I said I WAS feeling better ( I kind of was). I was needed people, that is right somebody needed me :) I was needed to go on an excursion with a Prep class to support one of the students, sure I said, I can go on an excursion.
The excursion was a bushwalk around Mt Wellington.....a bushwalk people...... on a mountain.
So I went, because it was my Principal calling and I really like her and I really need to have a job next year. Anyway the weather was lovely and I figured it would be good to get some fresh air.
Look! A curly fern!
I love this pic, it looks like they are really walking through the bush, but they were on a pathway and I was below them.
Anywho, apparently it was not a good idea because even though I felt ok that day, the next day I was down again and had to take the day off.
It is report writing season and I am still going, in fact I am supposed to be doing them right now.....I am not.
I DID get to school by the end of the week I was told many, many times how terrible I looked and perhaps I should have taken the day off. I wore make up people! I thought I looked ok, even my Principal said I didn't look great. It was a no win situation.
Anyway enough about me, my Grade 2's are still looking at arrays and we made some array cities after being inspired by this pin
I love them!
Oh, want to hear a funny, not funny story? Last week I told my kiddos to see if they could find some arrays at home and to draw or take a pic of it to bring in this week. That afternoon I got a call from a parent asking why her son had to bring in a razor...A RAZOR! No, no, no! I said, an array, we are looking for arrays, you know rows of things.
See funny, not funny.
So while I was sick, (did I mention I was sick?) I whipped up this fun file folder game ( I love alliteration) for making time. I did this because I didn't want to do reports. Just click on the pic to get your FREE copy!
