And Thanksgiving has just ended. They've been home for a week, and they know they'll only be in school for three more weeks before they're out for two weeks at Christmas. When I started this job, my students were way, way, WAY out of control. It was very hard, very exhausting work just to try to keep them from fighting one another. These are kids with understandable and very serious anger and behavior issues. I'm dreading returning to what I fear will be the same sort of classroom in the morning, and then after Christmas. Most of these kids will have enough gifts. But I expect that few of them will feel safe or peaceful durring the holidays. Our classroom is small and we're, all thirteen of us (including me and my Para), in this small room all day long. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to deal with things?
