To improve my students’ writing, I gave them a “Dear Diary” project which they started last Monday, and today is my first day to check their entries. Reading their writings made me laugh for a while. Here are some of the students Dear Diary posts:
“Teacher Joyce is the most evil and strictest teacher I have ever met in my entire life! She always give us a lot of homework :(” by Keang Huy
“I hate detention because it is boring but today I got one because I didn’t do my homework for Teacher Joyce.” From Marina Sun
“Teacher gave us difficult homework, now I am so tired.” By Sang Teng
“Too much homework to finish, now I have to sleep late and wake up early so I can pass them on time…Oooh Teacher Joyce.” By Yi Houy
They are hating me with all the homework I am giving them, hahahaha! Bad bad teacher Joyce! But hell no, I am very nice to them and all I want them to acquire is to be more responsible in their time and studies. I want them to value everything that they have in life because not all children can have the same things like them. Of course, this is not an overnight activity and I know they’ll pick up the lessons soon. Speaking of school and its on-going renovations, especially in the science laboratory, I hope and I really would love to have some blinds to cover the huge window, which will b helpful when I am using the projector. There might be some local shops here who sells cheap blinds. I hope the admins will check out their ready made blinds and set it up just in time for us to use it.
On the brighter side, it’s the Constitutional Day tomorrow and that means we do not have class at school! Yey! Another long weekend with my family. Andrea and Aaron will have exams on Monday, I better help them review their lessons to get high scores. Another week’s down, many more to go 🙂
