That's the term I was looking for! Everyone who has spent time in the classroom working with the students knows that the students bear well more than 50% of the responsiblity for the chaos in the room. The P has them in her office for talks. 1:1, each child is fine. They are even fine in a small group when not required to do anything that resembles schoolwork. The P even said to just keep them happy until the end of the school year. I think she's tired of dealing with them.

A couple of weeks ago we did a really fun activity with the students. They got to make balloon cars. The glue had to dry for a couple of days so the wheels wouldn't fall off. The kids were ridiculous. They took the cars apart, ruining them. We threw everything away.

I put together a new room arrangement and a list of students that can work together with the minimum amount of fighting. Hopefully that will work.
