I just started a new job about a month and a half ago. I'm doing small group pull-outs for reading intervention. I have two groups at each grade..6th, 7th, and 8th. Of the six groups, 5 are wonderful. The 6th group is 5 7th graders, which I see three times a week. One time a week I see them with 2 other 7th graders. This group is just relentless. I feel as if I can get nothing done because I have to stop every 2 minutes to get them to stop throwing things, touching each other's stuff, touching each other, making inappropriate comments, etc. They've started attacking me now, commenting on how they hate me, I'm not smart enough to be a teacher, I didn't go to a good college, etc. It is just NON STOP for the entire 48 minute period. I started putting post-it notes in their folders and commenting on positive behaviors. This worked with one student, who has been good since. It didn't work with the others. I can't give detention because we only have it once a week, so if you get it twice in a week you just go the next week, and so on. These kids are already sitting in on Fridays for pretty much the end of the school year for other reasons, so they know I can't give them detention. Is it OK to go to my director with this? Since it is a new program she is always curious as to how it is working. This group just does NOT work well. I can't change the times I see them and break the group up since I take them from Spanish class. They just don't work well together, and I don't want to be unproductive for the remainder of the school year. I can't get anything done with them, though.
