I feel like I have been totally out of the blogging loop for several days now and then when I actually sit down and have time, I have nothing that is all that important to actually share with anyone.
I have already recapped the Melon Days week. It went okay and I enjoyed "MC"-ing the queen pageant. It was an experience I NEVER imagined myself having, and one that I doubt I would do again. However, working with those 5 young ladies was a real treat. They were fun, funny, and very patient with my (at times) inability to read my script. The booths on the park for the actual Melon Days were fewer this year and it seemed there was even fewer people. But, over all it was a nice weekend and it was fun to see my sister.
Since then, pirate week at school has ended (I don't even know if I blogged about that) and we have settled back into a regular routine in our classroom. What a fantastic class I have this year. They are fun and bubbly and aren't afraid to try new things. It is very refreshing to have an energetic class. Go Amazing 6th Graders! :)
Tonight was a fantastic parent math night. We had many parents show up, many more than in the past in fact, and it lead to a great discussion about concerns, upcoming units, and then a chance to play a few math games and make a game to take home. We (the 4th grade teacher and I) are very excited to do our next Parent Math Night in December. YEA!
Class last night was good. I enjoyed having my laptop in class. I wasn't able to do anything with it really, because there is no WiFi in the high school, but it was like a little security blanket for me. Class seemed much less intimidating and mundane. I get to have it next week too! YIPPEE! :)
Well, it's time to get back to work! :)
Hi Mr. Hughes! You sound just like my daughters' 6th grade teacher, Ken Kwast, from way back in the 80's. He was without a doubt, the coolest, most popular teacher at Shannon Forest Christian School in Greenville, SC. He was young and single back when he taught our kids. Now he's married with a daughter in college. Ugh. Makes me feel old!ReplyDelete
Enjoyed your blog. Your students are blessed to have you. Blessings on you and your precious family!
