I had a baby on July 28th and am therefore missing the first part of school. Our students started full time on Monday and that day the sub e-mailed me to let me know I had about 4 students that might be a problem. I checked in via e-mail with her today and apparently they are still causing her and the activity teachers (PE, music, and art) problems. The principal talked with them and it did not phase them. I am planning on going in tomorrow to see if I can take care of this mess before it gets much larger. Our school system is unique in that the students go on break for a big celebration that takes the city over the last week of August. The sub only has to get through next Thurs (Aug. 21st). I plan on going back to class the day after Labor Day. Can you suggest ANYTHING that I can put into place tomorrow? I want something that the students will believe will be followed through. I had planned on implementing something like the Classroom Economy system when I returned, but I have got to have something now! I appreciate any help that you can give me!
