I found out yesterday that I will be moving to first grade next year! I am happy because my other option was preschool...however...that means I have to have this group of kids AGAIN!!! We are a 2 section elementary so I'll have about half of my kids next year. They have been driving me nuts from day 1! They are a nice group of kids they just think that they can do whatever they want ALL THE TIME. I know there are advantages to following the kids...but I'm feeling a little let down because I don't get a new group. Right now I have a big feeling of dread because I have to deal with these guys again. I just know how much I have battled with them and I don't know if I can do it for another year. I HAVE to get out of this mindset...any advice? Right now I'm trying to think of ways to be proactive about their behaviors...and I know I'm going to have to get on them from day 1 this time!
