Nothing To Report

Sunday Off

Intended to ride or something and ended up cleaning the house instead.

After church I went to lunch with my friends, came home and a wave of tiredness swept over me again.

Well, I did pluck some nice grass for the Boys. I considered turning them out on the lawn again, but decided I was too busy inside to watch them so I changed my mind.

This week is supposed to be pretty nice, so I have every intention of working them.

The road....paved with good intentions???

On a side note. It looks like my students did hardly any of the work I left them when the subs were covering my classes all last week. I am not kind about this. The work was handed out. Therefore it should have been done. Double grades for all work I leave when there is a sub. That means 10 zeroes for each student who did not complete anything.

This does not bode well.

I will not be handing out duplicate copies of the assignments either. If a student does not have what the sub handed out, then he/she will just have to get a copy from somewhere else. The only exception will be students who were absent. This time I carefully counted the number of copies of each assignment I made, so there are and will be no extras.

'T'will be interesting.

  2. Sounds like the subs didn't exactly sub . . . After a big event like your play, it'll take a while to recover - at least it would for me. With the nice weather coming on, I'll bet you'll be back out there before you know it!

  4. The school I work in has younger kids, 11-16 but the same issue with subs and homework. In one class, only one student handed in homework I heard. The problem is that the science department does not have a standard policy/penalty for not doing homework. Can you imagine? Crazy. How can they possibly expect kids to do homework under those conditions? However, I am sure that your kids were well informed of the consequences.
