    and I think it's because I have gotten too lax in discipline. :( They're so much better than the kids I've dealt with for the last 7 years that I just started letting things slip. They work quietly. Transitions and group work have just gone downhill, too noisy. Hallway behavior, not going so well. This frustrates me beyond words. This is something I have been consistent with. They've gotten compliments since the beginning of the year on their hallway behavior from other teachers, the P, office staff, etc. Maybe we're just having an off week. :(

    I am so in your shoes. Part of the reason I think my kids have begun to act up is, I have been out of the classroom a ton. Between me being sick, jury duty, meetings, and testing I have been out of the classroom and it's beginning to show in the kids behaviors. I was pretty tough on them yesterday and today.Hopefully it will get better for you, I know it will get better for me once I am able to be in the classroom more consistently.

    It could be environmental factors too. Hopefully it's just an off week and their behaviors improve next week.

    Between the full moon, very windy conditions, and a real nip in the air (not to mention the fact that it's our Thanksgiving weekend this weekend) has made for some crazy days here!

    Hugs! We have fall break next week and got two new students this week, so that's added to everything. I'm showing a video that relates to our social studies this morning just to get through the day. ;)

    Haha Bella I could have written your post!!! I was out for a training Mon and Tues, and we have fall break next week...the last 3 days have been something else. I just keep wondering what they're thinking! I have SUCH a wonderful, sweet class, but we definitely had an OFF week!
