The day to day happenings of a 6th grade classroom teacher

  • 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!

sorry, can’t do this

Posted by willkay on October 15, 2012

[UPDATE: Before you make a comment on this post, please make sure that you have read Miss Tere B’s comment.]

Unfortunately circumstances have changed, and my job has caught up with me. At this time I have found myself struggling to do my job properly and to keep this blog going. I simply do not have the time. Therefore I am going to have to suspend writing the blog. I know, I know. I toyed with giving up the job, but realised that then I would have nothing to blog about.

Please go easy on me in the comments. I feel badly enough about this decision, however I seriously cannot cope at the moment, and something has to go. If I get any time tomorrow I will try to update The Wall Of Fame – but I can make no promises.

To give you something to do until I return (oh, I am intending to return – let me assure you, these circumstances cannot remain this way because if they do, I’ll give up the job and return to the blog) here is a load of pictures I took of the DNA projects the students brought into school.
And here are two videos:

      Please note: I am not stopping doing the blog. I am putting it on hold. Yes, it is Monday and Mondays can be hard. However, the rest of the week isn’t looking any better for me. Sooooo, I’m taking a break from writing. That’s all. I’m not upset. I’m not angry. I am, however, very busy. I am sat here, with my computer open, marking maths books. After that, I have to rewrite the science exam. And after that I have to think about marking the “Haunted House” stories. Oh, and I also have to fit in an hour with a private student. It’s 5:30 now. I would like to have some time with Mrs. Kay.

      That’s why I’m taking a break.

    NOOOOO ! No importa que no lo escriba a diario pero , no deje de escribir , como padres de familia , es realmente un placer entrar y leer las anecdotas de usted con nuestros hijos en ese periodo que estan fuera de casa, ver sus fotos , sus videos . Yo platico mucho con mi niño, pero muchas veces ayuda saber que hicieron para poder empezar la charla , no se desamime , si se puede , si se puede !!

      Three things:
      1) Please read the blog and the comments. I am not stopping the blog, I’m taking a time out.
      2) It is 8:13pm and I am still doing school work. I haven’t eaten yet. Please try and see that I am having time difficulties.
      3) MRS Kay doesn’t write a blog. :^)

    When you are ready mr Kay start writing again when you have time

  6. I completely understand, and I know you want to write, but there are priorities. So don’t worry, do it when you have the time and energy. Your job comes first.
