Teacher's Homework

I've caught the winter cold again...(or as I like to call it, the plague). I'm stuffing myself with meds to hopefully cure myself so I don't have to go to the doctor...we'll see if it works.

Fortunately, Wednesday was a snow day! I was able to bone up on my med intake (I usually can't take any during the day, since 95% of meds make me sleepy), and thought I had caught it all-only to be fooled by the germs. Sneaky germs, they were just hiding so I would relax on the germ-killers.

So no outfit for Wednesday-even though I braved the cold, storm and snow (not really it was almost clear when I went out ;) to run some errands so I didn't have to do it after school.


Sweater: Target
Pants: Kohls
Shoes: Target

Sweater: JCPenny
Pants: Kohls
Shoes: Endless/Amazon

Not feeling well = comfy and cozy work clothes.

Funny story...I told my kids that I would be taking home some of their work to (hopefully) grade this weekend. I also showed them the stack I had accumulated.

One friend (who never turns in homework) thought it was hilarious that teachers had homework on the weekend and kids didn't (he even smiled and laughed-which is huge for this friend).

I told him that when he went to middle school and high school, he would have plenty of homework on the weekend...which he would be graded on.

I, on the other hand, didn't necessarily need to do the grading this weekend- and if it didn't get done (this weekend), I wouldn't be in trouble like he would be if he didn't do his homework. He didn't think I was funny....(the rest of the kids did! :)

My Stack
Teacher's Homework--It's amazing how much work 15 kids can produce

Instruments of torture :)
Have a wonderful long weekend! (I'll hopefully be germ-free by Monday...bring on the germ-killers!)

Smiles and Sunshine,


  1. Instruments of torture! LOL! Do you only use those papermate felt pens to grade?

    My Teacher Friend

    1. Yes, I use them 95% of the time for grading. Once in awhile I'll use them for lettering on something else (the colors are so pretty!), but it's rare. I've been using this set for almost a year and a even though they're a little expensive, they last a long time!

  2. Quick question, do those pens bleed through the paper? Before I invest, because you re correct they are a bit expensive, I wanted to make sure they didn't soak through??

    1. Hi Cami,

      You may be able to see some of the darker colors from the other side of the paper, but they don't usually bleed through (unless you leave the marker in one place for a really long time! :).

      I got mine at bet is to hold out for a coupon to bring the price down. However, I love using the different colors, and I think the kids enjoy seeing what color I graded their papers in.

      Hope this helps!

      :) Kaitlyn
