  • In The Sixth Grade We Read

    Every week I take in how many pages each student has read. Below is the "Wall Of Fame", the top readers for the week, and "The 200+ Club", all the students who have read more than 200 pages in a week. Congratulations to all those mentioned!

(trip) Thursday

Posted by willkay on October 21, 2010


I’ve just got back from the trip to the Natural History Museum. I need a shower and something to eat. Plus, I’ve just worked a 13 hour day – I’m a bit tired. I will load up as many pictures as I can (in the usual place – Flickr). Unfortunately there seems to be a lot of “red eye” and, again, I am a little too tired to do anything about it at the moment.

However, I would like to say “Thank You” to the sixth grade. They were excellently behaved and were enjoyable to be with. There were moments of “no fun” (anything that includes eight hours in a coach is going to have a lot of “no fun” moments), but they made the best of it. And, once we were in the museum, they behaved impeccably. They listened attentively, asked very important questions, and were a credit to their school. Congratulations and well done. Oh, and Thank You for making my job a little bit easier.

And just for you, a picture. You might know the name of these birds but you will never say it in class!

Don’t forget Reading Log Numbers tomorrow. See you at 8:30am.

    I am sorry I am soooo late with my comment, but now that I have the chance I want to say I am very proud of the 6th graders, and thankful to their teacher for withstanding the long drive back and forth.
    I will make it a point to inquire about something interesting that is much closer. However,I think it is worth it. Some students never get the chance to venture as far north as Los Angeles, even though it is quite near, and Los Angeles is a fantastic city filled with interesting and exciting activities, museums, places to visit, etc.
    Thank you Mr. Kay and 6th graders for setting a fine example.
