Who out there has been bored? I am kind of bored right now. I just don’t know what to write about. So I’m writing about how I don’t know what to write about. *Sigh*
Soooo….. how’s the weather out there?
Okay, this is not working. I’m sure you are bored out of your mind right now, but before you turn away and shut your laptop, turn of your screen, log out of your account, give me another chance. I’m going to tell you a 50 word story. It will be ridiculous, it will be WEIRD.
It’s Party Time
’twas a dark and stormy night, and all through the house, was a DANCE PARTY!! They laughed, they played, and they made new friends. They stayed up till 10:00 and —
I need YOU to come up with the final 20 words to this story. Be creative, HAVE fun!!! Let’s go for 10 different story endings. Thanks for reading, so, without further ado,
So has 5th grade turned out the way you thought it would? What did you think it was going to be like? What did you think the teachers would be like? How do you think 6th grade will be? What are you most looking forward to? What are you worried about? This is due Sunday.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!! Don’t make me tell you about 5th grade!! That means the year is almost over. NO NO NO NO NO! I really like 5th grade. Don’t make me go to 6th grade! 5th grade has been my favorite year so far. We have fun reading lessons and read good read-aloud books. We do cool and imaginative writing projects that actually improve my writing. We do simulations and project times in S. S. and we do unique projects in Science. We do Friday challenges sometimes that really make me laugh and think and we have an awesome teacher. We really lucked out. So DON’T make me leave, or even summarize the year. Teachers out there can’t deny it. We reflect at the end of the year. NO it can’t be the end of the year yet. NO NO NO NO NO! And there will be too many people in 6th grade. I don’t want to leave. I like (sort of) my class. I don’t want to rush around hallways and meet kids that are older and 2 feet taller. I WANT TO STAY HERE!!!!!!!
So no. I refuse to tell you all about the awesome year we had and the holiday parties and the movies and the indoor recesses. I will not tell you anything.
I for one like it better when our teacher just goes off the book a little bit, for Social Studies/Reading. We are learning about the Revolutionary War, and our teacher asked us how we want to learn the content. I like it better in the morning when she just looks at her teacher lesson book and gives us the run through. it makes much more sense then to read out of the book. It’s the truth all teachers but Mrs. Ripp is a good enough teacher and has just this way pull you in and making the boring parts exciting.
I actually just got back from a Girl Scout thing from all weekend and I am exhausted. I’m so tired I’m using voice command on my iPod because I can’t type a lot. Am I forgetting anything? I’ll blog again soon, thank you so much for reading, and I’m sorry it’s so short.
In 2030 I want to be a teacher, but the dilemma I have is that teachers as of now are very under-appreciated. They aren’t paid very much (apparently). So I don’t know what to do. Should I follow my love of learning and kids? Should I base my decision on economy and be a computer programmer (VERY useful but sounds boring to learn (sorry computer programmers out there). Or should I say, “Sure, be a teacher.” But inside hope I change my mind before it’s too late?
I’m a little sad because I really want to be a teacher, but my mom (SHE’S a teacher), says being a teacher is a bad idea. So she kind of shot me down.
As a backup plan I could be maybe a pediatric doctor. One part of being a medical person though is being a surgeon. I DON’T WANT TO BE A SURGEON!!!!!!(mostly because I watch Grey’s Anatomy and people die on that ALL the time (yeah, yeah… not accurate… but still!))!!!! I don’t want to be responsible for life-death situations (maybe I’ll change my mind…), I just want to be that doctor that gives you check-ups, or maybe more of a, “well, it is a broken foot. We’ll just put a cast on it, give you a wheelchair (or crutches… not a doctor yet…) and then you can be on your way. Just make sure you stay of that leg…” I want to be that kind of doctor. I guess I am just a chicken that doesn’t want to be responsible for people dying (or living… I guess…).
But I don’t know what to do! Do I want money and security, or do I want to be a teacher? Is a teacher’s economic position that bad?? (Teachers — this is where you tell me whether a teacher’s economic position is that bad!!!!)
HELP ME PLEASE!! Please leave comments with what you would do, or maybe what you do (what’s your job, how’d you pick.. do you regret it…), or maybe what you want to do when you grow up.
It is indeed the 3rd trimester, and I’ve really enjoyed 5th grade so far. I do wish we would continue with the Friday Challenges, tough. They really help have a fun end to a week, and they are puzzles to figure out.
We should do more interactive learning, earlier in the year we did an interactive ship experience thing in Social Studies. That was my ALL-TIME favorite Social Studies unit.
I also really liked when we had more reading time, even if we can’t have more, what happened to all the reading time???
I like it when we do all our Friday activities because they allow us to reflect on the week in a way that doesn’t feel like we are thinking to much. It’s just like as if we were sharing stories, you know, in two or three words.
What do you wish you could do in your classroom? What do you wish you could have done in 5th grade??? Please share your stories.
