So…yeah, its been 2 years. If you couldn’t tell already by the title. I thought since its the middle of the night and for some reason I can’t stop thinking about 6th grade, I thought I’d take a trip back to ye’ol’ edublogs. *sigh* I miss it.
After reading through all the posts I’ve written from 6th grade, I’d have to admit, I did get teary eyed…or maybe its because I’m in a dark room staring at a bright computer screen. OH WELL! Let’s not ruin the moment. Anyways, the point I’m trying to come across is that..well…I really do miss 6th grade. It really was the best year of my life.
REASONS I MISS SALTCREEK
5. Breakfast: I always enjoyed walking from the busses into the school in the morning, Mr.McGuire saying “Hey! Good Morning” to everyone who walked in, then going to go stand in line to get breakfast. Yummy! And then finally going to homeroom and seeing all my friends
4. Work: Yes, as much as I’d hate to admit it…I do miss the work, the projects, the HOMEWORK (although we didn’t have much). Because when I say “I miss 6th grade…I mean…I MISS 6TH GRADE.
3. Recess: Yes, we all knew this was coming. Why wouldn’t I miss it?! In 7th grade you get no recess. Zip, Zero, Na-da! Just a 30 minute lunch brake…..*wimper, wimper* *cry, cry*.
2. Friends. In 5th grade when the school “leaders” announced we’d be moving to Saltcreek, I was handed a paper that promised at least 1 of the 2 friends I picked to have in my homeroom. Unfortunately, I got neither…or should I say “Fortunately”, because since I didn’t get the friends I listed, I met SOO many new friends! Ryan McCoy, Luke and Logan Watson, Tyler Arledge…AND SO MANY OTHERS! Heck, I even met my first “love” there. But, the point is, I love all the new and old friends I met at Saltcreek. Their not just my friends…their my family.
1. Teachers: No you’d think “Friends would be #1. But, I had to go with the teachers. They were just so…different. A good difference at that. They were just so…I have no words to describe them all. So here, I’ve written some “thank-you”‘s to all my 6th grade teachers.
Mrs.Huysman: I always new science was fun, but you took it to a whole ‘nother level! You were so enthusiastic about everything. SO enthusiastic, I remember half the experiments we did. The pancakes, that “Liquid and Solid goop” aaand “The Cell” how could I forget that! Thank You for that.
Mrs.Webb: We may have gotten off on the wrong foot, but near the middle of the year, I’m glad with got balanced out. Because I had so much fun with social studies and the Egyptian project! *cough* King Tut *cough*. And so many others cool and unique things. Thank You for that. Oh, and Maddie says “Hi Webbsters!”
Mrs.Hardin: I’m glad I had such a great math teacher to help me when I didnt understand something or a certain problem in a question. You always new what to say and how to help me. Thank You for that.
Mr.Guthrie: If it weren’t for you, I don’t think I’d be were I’m at today in music and choir. I loved choir so much last year in 7th grade. I even got a solo for the Spring Concert (can’t remember if you were there for that or not). Thank you for teaching me the to love music and singing.
Mr.Griffith: Just to let you know I’m still drawing and I’m getting better ever drawing. I’m still using the skills you taught me and all the other stuff we did in your class. If it weren’t for you, I don’t think I’d have the joy for art as I do now. I knew when I first drew in your class back at Pickaway, I was in for a lot of awesome stuff!…and drawing of course! Thank you for that.
Mr.McGuire: I’ll have to admit the moment I walked into your class and you yelled “NOW I KNOW WHY THE TEACHERS ARE SAYING THIS MOST TALKATIVE CLASS” (or something like that) I was TERRIFIED. Hopefully thats something you do every year for every class to get them to shut up. But after the first week something clicked for me. I don’t know if it was the connection between your daughters and my mom, or how you got the honor of appearing on my “Ugly Sweater” (no hard feelings, right?) But something clicked. I’m still wondering what it was. Maybe it was the fact that I enjoyed singing everyday at the end of 3rd period. Or the blogs. Or the really unique lessons you taught me and my class. Whatever it was, thank you. Thank You for an awesome 6th grade year.
Well that concludes this post. Hopefully, the teachers whose names I mentioned read this, considering I stayed awake for 2-2 1/2 hours writing this. HeeHee. Anyways. Until next time. Ah
