I feel like a horrible teacher but I struggle with students constantly wanting to come show me something or tell me a story or something off topic. I teach second grade and I know that's part of the characteristics of a 7/8 year old. But I always feel like it's when we are suppose to be lining up or following a direction and I get torn of stopping and listening (and it possibly opening a can of worms and throwing the whole class off track) or asking them to tell me later and follow directions quickly. How do you handle this without seeming completely cold? When are times that they CAN just talk to me and show me stuff? I wish our day wasn't so jam packed full!
