This was my first day teaching a class of 22 first and second graders from 8:00 to 4:00. I left at 4:05 to pick up my kids from the babysitter I still have to replan for the rest of the week.....I miscalculated the amount of work 1st graders would do, their neediness, their lack of attention, their neediness, and my unpreparedness....... and all I want to do is sit here on the computer and type with my glass of wine. What is up with the bathroom? Do they really have to go that freakin much? I can't say no, what if they pee themselves and then I have a wet cryin kid? I was prepared..I thought. You go to the bathroom at break and lunch...you even move the fricken apple to out...they got that down...you hold up you hand and sign 'toilet'...they got that down...but they have to go all the time....guess I'll have to keep track of who goes to the bathroom and them make them sit out from recess for going to the bathroom. They want to use the computers, the library, but I have to come up with enough freakin centers to occupy the rest of the grade, so I can work with the other....I'm overwhelmed...help.
