ok, this could be my life!! After the first grade teachers carefully created classlists, 4 new students were put into my class without any thought of what could go wrong. Well, what could go wrong, did go wrong!!! We follow Responsive Classroom from Northeast Foundation and clearly the first 6 weeks of school will last a lot longer!!! Any suggestions would help. I have been teaching for 18 years and am always looking for new solutions to old problems!!! Thanks.
I feel your pain! I really have just been very carefully going over routines daily. Rules, rules, rules! This has been the best solution so far. We're still working on it, making sure we know what we're supposed to do when we get back in from recess or lunch. Please keep me posted on what happens in your class!
