It’s the end of the SOL21 challenge and I have to admit there were days this month that I found it more challenging to write than I have during the other two years I participated. There were days when I would get to the end of the day and realize I really didn’t do a great job noticing that day. I have to wonder if pandemic teaching made it harder to notice the little things throughout my day that could turn into slices. I wanted to try and focus on the positive because there have been so many challenges this year and some days that was difficult.
For the last day of the challenge I want to focus on some joys I found on day 31 of the SOL21 challenge:
Today was the end of my teaching week.
I’m looking forward to a relaxing 3 day weekend.
We have plans for a safe Easter dinner with family.
More family members got vaccinated today.
My class was shocked that we made paper airplanes as a follow up to a great Women’s History Month read aloud, Amelia and Eleanor Go for a Ride.
We read another great Women’s History Month book today, Searching the Stars: The Story of Katherine Johnson, NASA Mathematician.
We watched an Arthur video that brought sweet memories of my boys’ childhood.
The rain stopped so we could have our extra recess reward outside this afternoon.
There were squeals of delight as paper airplanes flew through the air.
I’m looking forward to some knitting.
I don’t have to pack my lunch tonight because I can work from home tomorrow.
I’ve completed 31 days of slicing and this year I did it with a group of colleagues.
