I have a self-contained room with four kids. FOUR KIDS. That's it. You'd think it would be a breeze. However, I have two well-behaved kids, and two that aren't so great. So after lunch, all my kids have to do is come in, sit down in their seat, and listen to me read a story. Then we do a reading comp game as a group. While reading comp is important, it's also a way that I can give my aide a lunch break. You think it would be easy, right? Wrong. For some reason my two behavior kiddos seem to melt down during this period. I can't figure it out. I try to pick really interesting books - still they melt. I do really interesting reading comp exercises/games - still they melt. I get lots of comments like, "I'm BORED" or "CAn I go to the bathroom? I'm TIRED." Today I just about lost it. I'm considering trashing read aloud. But then on the flip side, I'm like, "WAIT A MINUTE. WHO'S IN CHARGE HERE?" And I do have two kiddos that do really well with it. I can't decide wether to keep fighting them on it, or just give in and come up with a plan B. Any advice is appreciated.
