PMSing women who have been told there is no chocolate. I had a split assignment today, 5th grade in the a.m. and /1st grade in the p.m. The morning was business as usual. I can appreciate 5th graders. They are very independent, and are just teetering on the edge of being insufferable preteens. 1st graders. Lord help me. The tattling and downright petty snarkiness drove me to open a bottle of wine when I got home. My attitude is much better now, but I have definitely been reminded why I do not sub for first grade.

Whereas, the closer they get to preteen, the more they terrify me! You can have 5th grade. I'll take the tattling firsties, thank you.

First grade can be a killer. I feel your pain.

As a special area teacher, I often found first grade to be difficult. It's like they regress in some ways between the end of Kindergarten and the beginning of 1st grade. This is one of the first years (out of 30) that I've actually actively enjoyed the first grade class at my regular PT job, but it's a teeny-tiny class with a very experienced teacher.

Tattling, drama and constant arguing always drives me nuts and yes, that does seem to disappear by 5th grade. It seems to me that it usually peaks somewhere around 2nd or 3rd grade. It's 3rd grade for me this year in my regular job and I've dealt with it a lot in 3rd grade classrooms elsewhere as well.

The same thing happened to me subbing 1st grade. I had an adult beverage when I got home

Normally, I can let a challenging day roll off my back, but as I said to the P (with whom I have a very good relationship), “ days like these are why wine was invented”. She agreed.
