I had to have a sub today for work purposes. My student teacher was going to sub, but ended up sick! Yikes! I had no idea what she had planned because she is submitting the plans a day ahead to the elementary coordinator. So, finally get another sub, and have to explain what I could understand from the plans to her and leave. I come back at the end of the day and find out the class had just misbehaved all day! They have been acting up all week, and I just don't get it. Their music teacher complained, the librarian complained, and today their PE was cancelled due to their misbehavior. I don't know what to do. I told them early this week if they get 5 checks, they lose computer and free-time on Friday. They are now up to 3 checks after today. I moved them out of their groups, and I am very anti sit-in-rows alone, but all they are doing is talking right now. I have one super smart boy who keeps arguing with all the kids. Also, I know my student-teacher is doing an awesome job, but she still doesn't have that "teacher" voice, which is normal, and sometimes the kids get away with talking while she is instructing, which is something she is working on. I am wondering if this change in teachers is partly due to what's happening. I don't know. I seriously felt like crying when I heard what happened because I feel like this is a reflection of me as a teacher...Oh, and apparently one of my little students knocked down a metal sign and it hit my coordinator in her back-she was using an ice-pack the rest of the day... Any advice??? I really need some... Thanks guys!
