Happy New Year everyone! I hope the start of this new year finds you in good health and in good spirits. I am so excited to do my first "Currently." Well, everything in blogging is a first for me. Here goes:
Listening: the days are usually filled with noise, but when the kiddos from school are gone, and the kiddos at home are asleep, it's nice to indulge in some peace and quiet.
Loving: every once in a while it feels good have the ultimate comfort...a full day of p.j's...just because.
Thinking: I am so thankful for my job, my family, my friends and their love and support.
Wanting: nothing really
Needing: yes, I have neglected my domestic duties. My house is a mess, but, on the other hand, I have truly enjoyed doing, well, just about nothing, this winter break. Spending time with the kids has taken priority over everything else and we've had a blast! See!
OLW: Balance. I don't know if anyone else fills their plate full and then gets anxious or slightly stressed out. This is nothing new to me. I finished an Additional Qualifications course 3 days before my wedding, I went to my Graduate school convocation 8 months pregnant...the list goes on and on. I am known for trying to do too much. I need to find balance. Balance between work and home. I need balance and need to trust that what I am doing is enough.
"We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop." Mother Teresa (Words to Live By).
I am very ready to go back to school on Monday and I hope you are too! If you are looking for some new activities to do with your kiddos, then check out my Winter Fun! Literacy and Math Activities unit.
Snowy Shapes: Identifying, drawing and labelling shapes.
More or Less: Counting sets and determining which has more and which has less.
Mitten Middle Sounds: Identifying the middle (vowel) sound in a series of pictures.
Toboggan Ten Frames
Cocoa Number Order: ordering numbers from least to greatest
