i have 24 students.
I found out today that the numbers are this high across the district. I don't see them hiring 6 new teachers, so we will have to deal. I do have more bruises on my legs from walking into desks this year.

I have 25 this year. I think ANOTHER important number besides the class total is the number of "red flag kids." I am curious to see how many retainees, sped, bilingual, and behaviors you all have within your class. I have 4 retainees, 2 bilingual (one that speaks no English), 4 sped, and 7 red flag behaviors kids.
Thanks for letting me vent.

1 red flag, 2 possible sped cases (but are sooo sweet), and the rest are great.
I have never had this good of a feeling about a class at this point in the year. Love it!!
I have 2 retainees, 7 or 8 bilingual, 1 sped, 5 on my radar for sped, 5 speech, 5 potential behavior issues. Most of my students are at risk.
Of my 28 students ONE showed up at our open house tonight. To make matters worse, the little brother started pulling my room apart. Mom said nothing.
I also found out that third grade is getting a new teacher. Their numbers are just as high as ours. I am happy for them, but what about us? We were told that there is no room for another teacher. Sigh...
Sorry for the ramble. Today was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day!

I have 19 students.
In Ontario the grade 1 classes are supposed to be capped at 20, but often they do go over by 2 or 3.
Started with 20 on my roster. One never showed up and the other withdrew on meet the teacher night. He is going to go to his mom's school. I have 18 now...get this....6 boys and 12 girls!!!
Right now I have 12 - includes 2 ESL and 1 SPED.
Wait....so some of y'all have numbers in the 20's WITH an assistant????? I have 27 now, including 2 sped.

So far I have 18... we were supposed to receive an updated class list on Friday, but we never got it. Never mind that we had 30 families come in to register their children last Thursday.

Do other teachers have assistants either full or part time? Gosh that would be nice!!
I have 13 kids with a para in the afternoons. I lost my morning para. Hopefully won't loose the guy in the afternoon. I think it is really neat for the kids to have a male role model in the class. ( I was supposed to have a sped student but lost him over the summer. We are currently waiting for a meeting on another student which may determine whether I get aides or not.)
I have 20 students with a para that comes in for two hours in the morning and two and a half hours in the afternoon.
I hope you don't lose the guy in the afternoon too!
I received my updated class list on the first day of school, and there was a new student added, putting me at 19. However, 2 students have not shown up at all this week... it sounds terrible to say, but I really hope I stay at 17 students!
