It wasn't me!!! I was subbing for a first grade class and they were sharing stories they had written and while one boy was reading his, another boy passed gas (loudly)! Of course, the entire class erupted in uncontrollable giggles and it took literally about five minutes to calm them down and get them focused again. Even after most of the class had composed themselves, all it took was one student to stifle a giggle and the class lost control again. I know I'm not the only one this has happened to, but I really was at a loss of what to do. Do you let them laugh and get it out of their systems? Do you try to settle them down quickly and ignore it? I'm not real sure about the best way to handle this situation. What do you guys think?
