If you have looped with a class and knew you were going to before the summer, did you tell your kids? I keep going back and forth with the idea. On one hand they are really nervous about getting a new teacher, so knowing would really put them at ease. They make comments all the time like "I don't want to go to 1st Grade, I want to stay here with you next year"-so part of me is just dying to tell them I'm going to 1st too. On the other hand, things happen and decisions change. One of the admins has a child she wants in my class-so out of all the moves that are slated to happen, I think this is the most likely. I'm just not sure what to do. What's been your experience?
