It is hard to believe that half of the school year is over. Second quarter is over and we are going into third quarter. I know it will be a time of hard work, but I know my students are up for the challenge.
Why should the students in my class try to curb their talking during class time? I have tried punishing students, calling parents, missing recess, rewarding students, using the yaker tracker, and other things. I have yet to find the right thing to help my class learn when to talk and what the appropriate level for talking is
Sometimes I wonder if I will ever have all my school work done. It seems like every night, I am bringing papers home to grade and lesson plans to prepare. Do you ever feel overwhelmed by schoolwork?
