I know I have it easy this year compared to some issues teachers deal with behaviorally. But my kids are starting to drive me nuts-I feel like they are sooooo high-maintenance. I hear my name about 137 times a day. Miss T look what I made, look I wrote my name, Miss T what are you doing, what are we going to do next. And my all-time favorite, when I'm walking around monitoring their writing and tell someone they are doing a good job-what about me, am I doing a good job, what about me, look what I did. I just want to scream sometimes-I'm looking at everyone's work. Small group time I wear a cowboy hat so they know it means "whoa"-only bother me if someone is bleeding. All I have to do is point to the hat-so I know they can manage themselves. And I'm probably causing it somehow, but I don't know why all of a sudden they are so needy. Any suggestions on curbing the neediness?
