Nau mai, hoki mai, talofa lava and welcome back!
How was the weather in your part of the country on this first day of winter? It was utterly beautiful in Rotorua.
Friday - and the first week back in school has drawn to a close.
Tama 1 started back with CurrClick classes this morning. Zoology at 8.00am with Mrs Mackin.
Lesson 1 and Aotearoa already has a mention - the takahe. (I remember seeing them when I worked in Fiordland.) Pretty cool New Zealand makes it into the textbook within the first lesson eh?! hee hee
The breakout session went really well. The students worked on the mnemonic phrase which is always fun.
I'm really going to enjoy this class. Learning about flying creatures will be really interesting and if there's one thing about Jeannie Fulbright's textbooks that I like, it's the "What do you remember?" questions. Tama 1 recalls information a lot better than his mum I can tell you!! So I like going through the lessons again myself to try the questions on my own. :)
Spelling in the afternoon for half an hour. Tama 1 started with AVKO. I gave him 50 words. Tamāhine 1 and tama 2 are working with Spellodrome today. The screen certainly looks different to the last time we used it (shows how long ago that's been). I think I'll leave it to the kids to let me know what's new etc. I set them half an hour each (well, tama 1 possibly finished a little ahead of the others).
We finished off the day with reading till about 5.00pm and practiced some TKD.
Because tamāhine 2 and tama 4 are still coughing I don't really know what we'll do over the weekend. I have a feeling I'll be staying home trying to get them on the mend. If that's the case, I will set myself the goal of completing tamāhine 2's exemption.
Thanks for dropping by
