One Bad Day
Today was a difficult day for everyone! It started first thing in the morning, my students would not stop talking and wiggling! It didn't help that I was tired. Last week was such an off week with all the snow days and delays that we were all having a hard time getting into the swing of things. During our morning language arts centers I had to do the middle of the year Dominie testing. I put my assistant in charge of the center rotations and she did her best, but somehow things got messed up and kids were all over the place! I wanted to pull my hair out! By the time we did math in the afternoon I was on a short fuse. I had been yelling all day long and I had enough. In the middle of my lesson, I threw my hands up and walked out of the room for a good ten minutes! I knew that my assistant was giving them a talking to. When I got back my kids behaved for about five minutes and then it was back to the talking and wiggling. I guess these days are bound to happen from time to time, I just hope they don't happen very often.
