Where am I?

Call your friends! Call your classmates! Text your boo! Get the word out!

C'mon, smarty pants, amaze me. I know I have some of the most brilliant students of all time in my class. SSSSSSOOOOOO, WOW me. When you come back on Tuesday, come back with something that makes your teacher think. What? I don't know--a joke, a riddle, a mystery, a quote, or a fantastic fact. Make me laugh, or make me cry. But, do not bore me. When we come to the circle on Tuesday, make me ponder your prose but don't make me puke at your patheticness.

By now you are saying, "what does he mean?" I don't know. I don't care. A cereal box back might work, or a quote from Abe Lincoln. Whatever you do though, don't be boring!


P.S. For about 5 million bonus points, where am I in this picture?

Mr. McGuire said...

Hey Alina,

I am crushed-I take your quote as a comment on your learning this year. :( But of course, you must be talking about learning in classes other than our language arts class.

Albert Einstein also said, "If I'd known what I was unleashing, I'd have become a watchmaker." Does this relate to teaching sixth graders?

Mr. McGuire, you are on the big hill on beside the gym building.

Mr. McGuire said...

Good guess, Kyle, but you are a long way off!

molly said...

the boulevard of broken dreams??

Katie W said...

Are you in your backyard????

Mr. McGuire said...

Hey Molly,

Here is a hint.

This area was a boulevard of broken dreams in the early 2000's during the dot-com bust.

Kari w said...

I would have to guess some where in California but I don't know the exact location so I'm sticking with California!

Kari w said...

Wait I think it's some where near San Fransisco and I don't know how to spell San Fransisco.

Kari w said...

No wait, the San Fransisco Bay I think well that's my last and final guess I think.

Katie W said...

I think you are in the San Fransisco Bay area.

Katie W said...

I have a riddle to tell you. There was four men in a boat. The boat tips over, all four men sink to the bottom of the lake, yet not a single man got wet.How could that be?

Mr. McGuire said...

Hey KW's, you are very close. Look at the clue I gave Molly, and then look at a map. It will be a sunny day in your life, when you get the bonus points.

Shayna T. said...

I think you are either in San Jose in California.

Shayna T. said...

Wait, that last coment was messed up. My final answer is San Jose California.

Mr. McGuire said...

Hey Shayna,

Did you consider the clue I gave the KW's? Look over hill and dale, and you can find the location.

Mr. McGuire,
Are you in Pleasant Hill looking over the Univerisity of Berkley in California?

Mr. McGuire said...

Great guess, Dillon, but no. There are several clues, although they might be hidden behind a vale (veil).

Chris L. said...

Mr. McGuire you are at Red Wood national park.

Dillon Y. said...

Mr. McGuire you are in Sunnyvale, Clifornia. That is my answer

Kari w said...

I think you are in the Eastern Foothills. Am I right?

Kari w said...

Sorry I have a slow computer and I thought it wasn't posting! Whoops!

Dillon Y said...

Sorry about the spelling, "California"

Dillon Y said...

Kari and Katie, please be wrong, please be wrong. I want to be right!!!

Katie W said...

I think it is Amador county California.

Mr. McGuire said...

OK, Dillon, please explain to all the unfortunates, just how you came up with your answer.

Katie w said...

Is it sunnyvale California?

Kari w said...

I would have to guess sunnyvale or sunnydale well it is close to what Shayna said and I thought it might be right and I hope I am!!??

I see dead people ooooohhhhh scary said...

I despise Dillon. Those extra credit points are mine.

Dillon Y said...

Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes... I came up with my answer because you said it was close to San Jose and you told the Willards it would be a "sunny day" in thier lives when they get extra credit. Also you said hidden behind a vale and then the real way (veil) which was a clue. Then put it together "Sunnyvale, California".

Dillon Y said...

O and Mr. McGuire, nothing less than 5,000,000 bonus points. I will be counting. LOL!!

Mr. McGuire said...

Dillon,

You must learn to read more carefully. The blog says, " about 5 million." HA HA HA HA HA Never trust the guy who controls the editing. :)

But, because of your hard work, I will make it well worth your while.

And to the losers, oh, I mean to those that tried but didn't quite get it right, I promise to reward your effort. I will give you about 2 million bonus points.

Katie W said...

Hey thats not fair. We should get just as much as him because we gave him all the clues while Dillon just sat back and pieced together all our clues!

Kyle Ferguson said...

Mr. McGuire you are in silicon valley.

josh p said...

is it in Sunny Hills, Fullerton, Orange, California, United States

josh p said...

is it The Hill N Dale Family Learning Center in San Diego because I typed in "hill and dale" at www.google.com

josh p said...

i typed in sunnyvale california at google.com/maps but all i see is a city no hills so whoever guessed sunnyvale is probably wrong

josh p said...
