    I am SO losing patience with my 6th graders. They have just shut down!! They sit around during work time, then tell me to just give them the F cause they don't want to do the work. They are very perverted and dirty. They are constantly talking and interrupting. They can't keep their hands off each other, they can't stay in their seats. This is my first year with 6th grade...just wondering, are they always this bad at the end of the year? I'm at my wits end! My other kids are still getting work done, and I even had 3 5th graders get a 100% on their final science test today. But the 6th graders....ugh!

    My 6th through 8th graders are the same. Though they are not perverted or dirty, thank God. They never shut up or stop getting out of their seats. I start every afternoon class with a 5 minute run outside. Seems to be working!

    How about ending next year with a project that is engaging? Maybe having them perform a play or something involving music? What subject do you teach?

    I actually have been doing this. We had two projects in reading (half of my students turned these in as much as a week late...and they had 2-3 weeks to work on them). They are also working on projects in social studies. These have been going better, but Monday we share them. I've also noticed a lot less work being accomplished in the last few days...should be interesting to see what kind of grades they get.

    I totally agree!

    This school year needed to end about 2 weeks ago. I've had an awful year and right now they are out of their ever-loving minds! They are out of control and professing their crushes! It's fourth grade!
