I am really wondering when teachers get everything done. I know that my classroom teacher has stayed late almost every night. There is so much to do and I try to help out as much as possible, but I think there is so much going on after we leave that we can’t help with! I am trying to do some of my lesson plans and I am having a hard time because we don’t have all the materials from the book companies. When the teacher guides are in line with the kits they provide, it is hard to teach when you don’t have the kits.
The kids haven’t been too bad today. Yesterday the whole class hit 5 stickers and everyone got a piece of candy! We moved more desks to get students to cooperate and not talk so much. Soon, we will be putting them in groups and rearranging the classroom more to Mrs. C’s liking. Hopefully then, everyone won’t be stressed about all the things in the room!
