Hard to get back into the swing after even the shortest breaks away

Nau mai, hoki mai and welcome back !!!

Gone are the days when our mornings would always start with Math lessons.  For one reason or another we are finding Maths difficult to work on together, especially now that Maree is stuck helping tama 1.  Math has never, and never will be, one of my strong suits, and tama 1 has pretty much reached a point where I am not confident to teach him.

However, I've included the children's mahi from today.  Just one page each is all I asked from them because tama 2 and tamāhine 1 are working on "new" areas so concentration was pretty intense.

This is tama 2's effort:
Tamāhine 1's page:
And here is tama 1's page:
I would share their writing today but tama 2's effort isn't his best.  He insisted on using a pen and I explained that if it wasn't good enough he'd have to repeat it.  Let's just say he's had better days:-)  He's obviously had too many days away from writing practice.

We had a visitor this morning as well which threw school out a little bit, so we're only getting around to our reading time ... it's just after 11.30am.  Oh well, all good.  The afternoon is still to arrive.

Thanks for dropping by
