I slam my hand on the podium. That gets their attention, then I say, " got them! Bunch of ants on my desk". They laugh but are then more attentive.

Our kindergartners think

putting their names on the board is the worst thing ever. Use it sparingly. Maybe the group you describe is a little past that, I get on the paras to help split them up.

I've noticed

sometimes you have a crappy day or two and there's no rhyme or reason why. I think all you can do is try not to internalize it or dwell on it. Of course this is easier said than done.

I was like this

I've worked with some doozies over the years but this one sounds like a winner. Apply for a different grade level or something, but get away. She could mess up your career or your health.

So it's really cold here for a change

and this morning a 2nd grader comes through the gate a t-shirt. Shivering.

ME: Aren't you cold?
HIM: Yeah.
ME: Where's your coat?
HIOM: I forgot to remind my mom to give me one.
