The adventures of a fourth grade teacher in East Central Illinois.

Teaching While Sick

I hate being sick. And I hate having to take cold medicines to deal with being sick. When I don’t have work, my usual method for dealing with being sick is to curl up in a ball and sleep in my bed until I am feeling better.

Alas, I could not do that today, although I felt like calling in sick around midnight. But I figured I could slog my way through the day. Besides, it was Friday, and Friday’s are usually pretty easy days.

We had a spelling test in the morning, silent reading, and math. The afternoon was spent with the students participating in their preferred activities during Read, Write, Think. I tried to change some things up with Read, Write, Think, but I’m not going to do it that way again. I am trying to make it more structured, but the structure I tried today didn’t quite work out the way I had hoped, so I’ll try something new the next time we do it.

So I made it through a day at work while feeling sick. Here’s to hoping I’m feeling better by Monday!
