HI I am teaching third grade for the second year in Utah. I have a VERY distracted bunch this year. They are also not very good team members. There is a lot of finger pointing and not nice behavior. Keeping organized and on top of the class happenings is very hard. I am exhausted and feel very disorganized by the end of the day. I wonder if anyone has any similar experiences? I also am looking for teachers what they do in after hours routines. I am finding I am spinning my wheels and not making good use of my time. Any one? Josi
How structured is your classroom? In other words do you have clear procedures and expectations for everything? Also, do you do any kind of morning meeting to encourage team building? You may have to explicitly teach the behavior you are looking for with lots of examples and non examples.
