The Little Things
How is it April and I'm just now figuring out how to ensure that all my kids turn in their homework (take away recess)? How is it April and I'm still trying to figure out how to stop name-calling? I think I've gotten a better grasp on the big picture of teaching, but I'm still struggling with some of the smaller albeit essential details. Still, it feels good. I get through a day and I've gotten through all the lessons I had planned. Things like pacing, ignoring the small misbehavior and implementing consistent rewards and consequences are finally coming together. I hope that soon the small things will follow.
