Thank you to the Two Writing Teachers for sponsoring the Slice of Life Challenge every Tuesday.
Winter settles in. The snow is everywhere. More snow is on the way.
Indoor recess is more frequent as the temperature dips below -20 degrees Celsius.
Students rush in from lunch to find an independent reading spot. The room is silent as I take attendance; you can hear a pin drop.
January is done. February is slipping away fast.
World Read Aloud Day ends tomorrow for us; two more Skype sessions in the morning.
Teachers’ Convention is next week. Two days of learning and then a three-day weekend to rejuvenate.
In my mind, this is the mid-way point of the year. The next few months will follow in a blur as we read, write, talk and learn our way through grade 4. We’ve accomplished so much. So much more learning to do.
This is a bittersweet time of the year.
