Hi all, I am extremely frustrated with my class this year. I have students that seem incapable of listening to instructions and following them. I went over procedures extensively at the beginning of the year and they still don't follow them and seem like they can't even be bothered to even try and remember!! For example, when students finish work they place it in the finished work.. I have about 2/3 of the class that still does not follow this simple direction. I feel like I can't keep taking time to go over it when we are already missing so much learning time due to inability to listen or follow directions. I also get very frustrated with lack of care for class materials (glue sticks, white board markers, books) because I purchased most of these things and it makes me crazy they don't take care of them! Is this normal in kinder or would you expect your kinders to have these skills by now!? I feel like I can't move past the most basic of tasks and can't do any fun projects bc they can't listen and honestly don't put a lot of effort into anything they do. Ready to quit!! Any advice is appreciated!!
