Sometimes, when I have had enough of a kid and need a little break, I will send the kid to my friend, the music teacher, next door. It's a common technique used by many teachers.
Well, today I had had enough of 1st grader Isaiah shouting out and asked him to go next door. He refused. I asked him a second time. He continued to just sit there looking grumpy. So, instead, I asked the rest of the class to go next door. They all got up and left him sitting there looking grumpy.
Then he and I had a little talk about when he grows up gets a job and how he is going to have to start following orders at some point!
Two more days 'till summer!! woohoo!!
